Ideal for college students and advanced high school students, the American Heritage College Writer’s Dictionary is a brand-new paperbound reference book from the editors of the American Heritage Dictionaries. It is aimed at users who need a dictionary that is more advanced than the Student Dictionary but more conveniently sized and priced than the 2084-page hardcover American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Fifth Edition. The College Writer’s Dictionary will be especially useful for customers who do not have ready access to our electronic products. Each entry is clearly defined, and thousands of example sentences show how entry words are used in context. There are no biographical or geographical entries, thus allowing more room for basic vocabulary. A gazetteer at the back of the book lists countries, states, and capitals. Hundreds of word history notes describe the development of words in clear, straightforward language. A style guide, detailed definitions of grammatical terms, and dozens of usage notes provide guidance on grammar and style points. This reference book is designed to be a workhorse for writers – great for high school students who are studying for standardized tests or who are allowed to use print dictionaries during tests, for college students whose schools lack the resources to provide online content, and for individuals who prefer a conveniently sized print dictionary for their home or office.
