This well-researched, up-to-date dictionary is highly recommended, especially for those not already owning the 11th edition.

This 12th edition celebrates the dictionary's centennial with 400 new entries (for a total of 240,000 words in all).

High standards for brief, clear definitions are maintained throughout.
