Can't read much without this book around. AND it comes with a CD so I don't even need to grab the book. I try to keep one in every room of the house. (For you who don't know me, I'm practically illiterate without my dictionary, and I can't even spell "kat" without it. ( )

This version of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, is burgundy leather-look, and thumb-notched. For this new edition, America’s largest staff of lexicographers made more than 100,000 changes and added more than 10,000 new words and senses, such as 'convergence', 'Frankenfood', 'phat', 'psyops', and 'vermiculture'. The Eleventh Edition, with over 225,000 definitions, also features more than 40,000 usage examples — more than ever before — which clarify confused or disputed terms. Additionally, thousands of phrases and idioms help distinguish vocabulary for language learners. Special sections include A Handbook of Style, An Essay on the English Language, and Signs and Symbols. Over 55 million copies of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary have been sold, spanning a time period of over 100 years. Includes an electronic version of the dictionary and a free one-year online subscription.
