Abstract:

Webster's Third New International Dictionary is a completely new work, redesigned, restyled, and reset. Every line of it is new. G & C. Merriam Company now offers Webster's Third New International Dictionary to the English-speaking world as a prime linguistic aid to interpreting the culture and civilization of today, as the first edition served the America of 1828.

It undertakes to provide for the changes in public interest in all classes of words as manifested by what people want to read, discuss, and study.

This new Merriam-Webster unabridged dictionary is the record of the English language as it is written and spoken. It is offered with confidence that it will supply in full measure that information on the general language which is required for accurate, clear, and comprehensive understanding of the vocabulary of today's society. - Preface.
