There are over 350,000 entries and meanings - more than 16,000 of them new - in a single A-Z vocabulary illustrated by over 34,000 written examples and by nearly 4,000 photographs and drawings in "The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Third Edition." More than 500 usage notes and comments, including the opinions of a distinguished Usage Panel, provide sound guidance toward grace and accuracy in the use of English. The Third Edition, which contains a newly revised Appendix of Indo-European roots, more than 400 word history paragraphs, thousands of etymologies, over 900 cross-referenced synonym paragraphs, and more than 100 Regional American English Notes, is the only dictionary for those who are interested in the breadth, depth, and often surpirsing history of our language.
