Compiled and organized by the editorial staff of Merriam-Webster, one of America's premier publishers of dictionaries and library reference works, Webster's New Explorer Encyclopedic Dictionary features a brand new edition updated for 2006, with 330,000 words and definitions, more than 1,300 new words, and over 1,000 illustrations, all in one omnibus hardcover volume of 2200+ pages. Occasional "word history" sidebars also appear, explaining the origins of such common terms as "cynic" (derived from the name of an ancient school of Greek philosophers). An introductory section of explanatory notes, and a supplementary summary of how to use English punctuation rounds out this "must-have" resource for writers, students, and libraries. Highly recommended as the definitive guide to words of the English language.
