Reviews

"Contains words and phrases and colorful slang likely to be met in everyday usage in this country ... The 70,000 entries are compressed ... deliberately simple, but often sophisticated." The New York Times

"The straightness of many definitions deserves commendation." Harper Magazine

"The Oxford American has a new pronunciation system, in which words are translated into syllables of unmistakable pronunciation." Philadelphia Inquirer

"The hundreds of footnotes in individual entries illustrating proper usage of difficult words are alone worth the price." Chicago Sun-Times

Preface

This new member of the Oxford family of dictionaries has been prepared especially for those who need a compact, upto-date guide to American English. It contains words and phrases likely to be met in reading and everyday life, including a number of slang, informal, and technical words and phrases. Names of states of the United States are included, as well as state capitals, terms used to designate the people of each state, and names of the provinces of Canada. Names of the countries of the world, including those not yet well known, are also given, as are names of the capital cities and the terms used to designate the people of each country.

We take this opportunity to express our gratitude to members of the Oxford Dictionary Department of the Oxford University Press for assistance of various kinds, particularly to Dr. John B. Sykes, Editor of the Concise Oxford Dictionary, Sixth Edition, and to Dr. Robert Burchfield, Chief Editor of the Oxford English dictionaries. We are grateful as well to members of the staff of Oxford University Press in New York, most particularly to Marjorie Mueller, Janice Lorimer, and Cecelia Carollo, for help in all stages of our work.

We wish also to express our gratitude to the many members of The Hudson Group dictionary staff who worked on the Oxford American Dictionary. In particular we wish to thank senior staff members: Ernest S. Hildebrand, Jr., Margaret Huffman, Felice Levy, Lawrence T. Lorimer, and Gloria Solomon; associate staff members: Pamela Dupuis, Mary Egner, Richard Ehrlich, Raymond V. Hand, Jr., Joan Lizzio, David H. Scott, and Katherine G. Scott; and assistant staff members: Lee Jayne Ackerman, Christopher Carruth, Hayden Carruth, Cynthia Crippen, Peggy Daly, Patricia Farewell, Sandi Frank, Mary Mattimore, Sheila McCaffrey, and Mary Racette.
