Pub. Date:

A conveniently sized paperbound print dictionary for upper grades in high school, and for students in community colleges, junior colleges, and four-year colleges, written with clear defining language. The focus is squarely on vocabulary and definitions. The sophistication level is greater than that of the Student Dictionary. Great for those without ready access to electronic products.

display_description "A convenient dictionary for high school and college students, featuring clear definitions and abundant example sentences. New for 2016, The American Heritage(r) High School Dictionary offers all the distinctive qualities that readers have come to expect from the American Heritage line without the inclusion of obscene words or offensive slurs. It has a contemporary, readable defining style, clear guidance on English usage, an easy-to-use pronunciation key, and an abundance of example sentences that enhance the definitions by showing how words are used in context. This reference work provides up-to-date information about words that students are likely to encounter in their studies, including current information on terms in astronomy, chemistry, physics, and medicine. In-depth usage notes enhance writing skills and help the reader discern the difference between the conventional and the quirky in language use. Special features on synonyms and word histories enrich vocabulary and show how language changes over time. The most comprehensive reference in its category, The American Heritage(r) High School Dictionary is the ideal choice for any student, family, home, or school."--
