The American Heritage College Dictionary is the newest in the line of American Heritage Dictionaries -- reference books famous for elegant, richly illustrated design, clear and authoritative definitions and usage guidance, and breadth of information of the history of the English language. Definitions are written in straightforward, jargon-free language that conveys meaning quickly and clearly. To make looking things up even more convenient, the most common meanings of a word are listed first, where they can be found most easily. Biodiversity, cyberspace, managed care, nanotechnology, and voice mail are just a few of the words from the 90's in The American Heritage College Dictionary, Third Edition, whose new vocabulary has been tracked and defined with the help of a huge computerized database. Word usage guidance is based on the most current linguistic research and on opinion polled from the distinguished American Heritage Usage Panel, a group of many well-known writers, educators, scholars, and public figures who are noted for their excellent command of the English language. Features also include an Indo-European roots appendix, word histories, regional notes, and photographs, line drawings, maps, and diagrams.
