Description

Ideal for college students and advanced high school students, the American Heritage High School  Dictionary is a brand-new paperbound reference book from the editors of the American Heritage Dictionaries. It is aimed at users who need a dictionary that is more advanced than the Student Dictionary but more conveniently sized and priced than the 2084-page hardcover American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Fifth Edition. The American Heritage High School Dictionary will be especially useful for customers who do not have ready access to our electronic products. Each entry is clearly defined, and thousands of example sentences show how entry words are used in context. There are no biographical or geographical entries, thus allowing more room for basic vocabulary. A gazetteer at the back of the book lists countries, states, and capitals. Hundreds of word history notes describe the development of words in clear, straightforward language. A style guide, detailed definitions of grammatical terms, and dozens of usage notes provide guidance on grammar and style points. This reference book is designed to be a workhorse for writers – great for high school students who are studying for standardized tests or who are allowed to use print dictionaries during tests, for college students whose schools lack the resources to provide online content, and for individuals who prefer a conveniently sized print dictionary for their home or office.

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.

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."--,Provided by publisher.
