9780195392883: New Oxford American Dictionary 3rd Edition

As Oxford's flagship American dictionary, the New Oxford American Dictionary sets the standard of excellence for lexicography in this country. With more than 350,000 words, phrases, and senses, hundreds of explanatory notes, and more than a thousand illustrations, this dictionary provides the most comprehensive and accurate coverage of American English available.

The dictionary draws on the two-billion-word Oxford English Corpus and the unrivaled citation files of the world-renowned Oxford English Dictionary to provide the most accurate and richly descriptive picture of American English ever offered in any dictionary. The Third Edition offers a thoroughly updated text, with revisions throughout and approximately 2,000 new words, phrases, and meanings. Many new words relate to fast-moving areas such as computing, technology, current affairs, and ecology, while others have recently entered the popular lexicon. Usage notes have been updated in light of the most recent Corpus evidence, and a completely new in-text feature on Word Trends charts usage for rapidly changing words and phrases such as carbon, mobile, or tweet. In addition, the volume has an attractive, modern new text design that makes entries easier to read and find.

One of the hallmarks of the New Oxford American Dictionary is the way it reflects the living language. Unlike in more traditional dictionaries, where meanings are ordered chronologically according to the history of the language, each entry plainly shows the principal meaning or meanings of the word, organized by importance in today's English. Thus readers can be confident that the first definition they see is the one most likely to be used by people today, and is not a sense that has been obsolete for two centuries.

Offering clear, authoritative, and precise information, with the in-depth and up-to-date coverage that users need and expect, the New Oxford American Dictionary is the benchmark by which all other American dictionaries are measured.

Review:


"It runs more than 2,000 pages and weighs upward of 800 pounds, so will need one forklift or three sumo wrestlers to hoist it, but you will love this gorilla once you get to know it."--James Kilpatrick, "Writers Life"


"Includes some unique and useful extras."--School Library Journal Curriculum Connections


"NOAD is an eminently usable dictionary with an attractive layout; clear, crisp illustrations; usage guidance; and synonyms with connotations. Sure to be everyone's favorite dictionary! Summing up: Essential."--Choice


"More current than its closest rival in size....This is a 'buy.'"--Booklist STARRED REVIEW


"Erudite, accessible....If you're looking for a desk dictionary that covers the spectrum of American English, with a fair quantity of encyclopaedic information thrown in, you could do a lot worse." --World Wide Words


"Ms. McKean had been dubbed "America's lexicographical sweetheart" by National Public Rasio's program "Talk of the Nation.""--The New York Times


Reviews for the previous edition: "The gold standard of American dictionaries."--The Providence Journal


"With its unique approach to language, this is easy to use and provides clear, well-written definitions. "--Library Journal.


"Oxford has always been so good at dictionaries, and lexicographical publishing needs a boost after Random House suddenly abandoned the field.... I'd give the New Oxford American Dictionary to a person looking for a quick answer."--William Safire, The New York Times.


"In both definitions & pronounciations the dictionary emphasizes American English.... This is a useful quick-reference type of dictionary."--Houston Chronicle


"The New Oxford American Dictionary offers the most dependable reference information."--Seattle Times.


"Utilizing the latest techniques for analyzing word usage and meaning, the editors have compiled more than 250,000 definitions and 9000 biographical and geographical entries in an accessible resource with a distinctly American voice....An understated presentation exuding precision and authority, it is an essential tool."--School Library Journal [STARRED REVIEW]


"One of the best American-English dictionaries to come out in several years...This is a handy and not overly expensive dictionary to have on hand at the reference desk of academic and public libraries."--American Reference Book Annual 2002


"Its editor, Erin McKean, is, according to American newspaper reports, the hippest and sexiest lexicographer around. It's also the first such work... with an electronic edition accessible on the road, since it can be downloaded to your Palm, Blackberry, or Windows mobile device."--World Wide Words


"Unrivaled etymological information revealing fascinating word histories."--Tampa Tribune


"A labor of love and an unparalelled gift to writers and readers worldwide, the New Oxford American Dictionary should be on the reference shelf of every library." - Library Journal


"Remains true to its initial concent of being an easy-to-use single volume of words that reflect today's soceity...Recommended." --Choice
