Censored and misguided,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary (Paperback)
This is a seriously misguided edition. Words which appeared in the First and Second editions but are now considered "likely to offend" have been eliminated. This means that some of the oldest words in the English language have been erased, even though the rules of Scrabble expressly permit archaic and slang terms. Merriam-Webster's job is not that of moral arbiter and if they thought it important to have a version suitable for children, then they should have released a separate children's edition, rather than mutilating the adults' one.
