Second Edition

Edited by John Simpson and Edmund Weiner

  • This new Second Edition--the first up-to-date coverage of words and meanings in one alphabetical sequence since the original dictionary was published in 1928.
  • Each word is accompanied by its definition and quotations that illustrate the evolution of meaning from the word's first recorded usage and show the contexts in which it can be used.
  • Includes authoritative definitions, detailed information on pronunciation, variant spellings throughout each word's history, extensive treatment of etymology, and details of area of usage and of any regional characteristics (including geographical origins).
