The newly updated American Heritage® College Dictionary, Fourth Edition, presents the very best that a dictionary can offer. Bearing the distinctive hallmarks that characterize the American Heritage line, it has a clear defining style, expert usage advice, and over 2,500 photographs, maps, and drawings that enhance the definitions.
Unique to the 2010 update are recently prominent terms such as frenemy, parkour, and shawarma, along with new biographical entries for important figures including President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joseph Biden. Geographical entries reflect the latest geopolitical developments, and the currency table has been revised to reflect the adoption of the euro by additional countries and other global changes. Special features such as Synonym, Word History, Regional, Usage, and Our Living Language notes enrich writing and speaking skills.
