Today I received my new "American Heritage" 4th edition
book-dictionary (who would expect from all people me to prefer a book over a CD...)... Anyway. ***GREAT*** one. Even if you fell you have no unknown words just leaf through the pages and you will be charmed by the ammount of words, their usage suggestions and the *EXTRODINARY* ammount of words / pictures / informations.
And the best part (call me a linguist-freak) is the HUGE perfectly organized ammount of linguistic commentary, connecting words with Indo-European languages (even my favorite Irish) :)
I'm charmed by a dictionary....

The American Heritage Dictionary is an excellent resource for current American English. The definitions are clear, precise, and are supplemented with usage notes. A panel of linguists and wordsmiths were consulted on the inclusion of new words or usage, and the inclusion of their often pithy comments adds valuable insight on usage. The dictionary is also nicely laid out and thus not tiring on the eyes.

This is the best everyday dictionary I have yet found. What defines a dictionary? A dictionary should be precise in it's definitions. The breadth of vocabulary must be wide. It should be light-weight and compact for easy, daily use. Look up dictionary and this American Heritage should be listed.
