A Quick Tip by carolynn42
it's actually interesting to read some of the definitions in this one
More Merriam Webster - Merriam-Webs... reviews
Excellent book for student use. I would highly recommend this for anyone with kids in school above 4th grade
A dictionary is "Victorian design merged with a little bit of modern propulsion. What we have is an electric velocipede." - fitting "all the words" into a book is a constraining, outdated system... http://www.ted.com/talks/erin_mckean_redefines_the_dictionary.html
Always check multiple sources on etymology. This is often an unscrutinized area of dictionary publication that has people getting away with some weird stuff.
Cannot live without a dictionary. Everyone should use one.
What's not to like? I wish more people would use a dictionary from time to time...
Good but i have lost hope in Webster's when they started adding slang...blah!
