A great dictionary, but.....
on 18 October 1998
Webster's Third is certainly one of the great dictionaries of the world and the standard reference of American English. But it is showing its age. The major portion consisting of the A-to-Z listing was originally published in 1961. This revision has an addenna of 70 pages listing new words which have come into usage since then. Merriam-Webster has announced that a Fourth Edition should be expected by 2002. Hopefully, they are also looking on publishing a CD-ROM version.
