Description
This visually stunning dictionary has over 25,000 entries, covering all the vocabulary young readers need today. It was completely revised in 2010, with an all-new art program and thousands of new words and senses added, and it has now been newly updated. Special features include hundreds of notes and an appendix with a geographical dictionary, a guide to phonics and spelling, and more. AGES: 8 to 11 AUTHOR: The Editors of the American Heritage Dictionaries and of other reference titles published by Houghton Mifflin Company are trained lexicographers with a varied array of interests and expertise. Most of the editors hold graduate degrees and have studied at least one foreign language. Several have degrees in linguistics or in the history of the English language. Others have degrees in science or sometimes other disciplines. All the editors familiarize themselves with the vocabulary in specific subject areas, collect materials on new developments and usage, and work in association with consultants to ensure that the content of our publications is as accurate and as up-to-date as possible.
