Format: Hardcover
I bought this dictionary because it had received some good reviews. However, I must say that I am extremely disappointed and would not recommend its purchase to anyone. Every dictionary that I have ever used has divided the word it is defining into its correct syllables and then given the words' definiton. Well, not this one. My son was looking up words for a homework assignment and had to find the word "vegetable" and write down the amount of syllables it contained. This dictionary lists vegetable like this --> "veg-eta-ble". First, I thought it was an error. After all, who divides vegetable like that? As I did some further research, I soon realized that the dictionary does not bother to list the words and their syllables. Well, what I need is a complete dictionary, not some joke of one...

There's a lot of confusion about dictionaries out there because many people do not know that the name "Webster's" is in the public domain.
There's a very good reason why this is the official dictionary of the Associated Press, the Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times. Definitions are clear and complete, the typeface is easy on the eyes, and I like how major figures, place names, and foreign phrases are all included with the main entires. The reference material now placed in a separate section is outstanding and can serve the purpose of 3 or 4 reference works.
One complaint--I don't understand why the editors removed the handy brief pronounciation key from each page. Instead, on each page they somewhat sternly direct you to look at the complete key on the inside back cover. A major loss in convenience for what--saving maybe 25-35 pages in length?

My wife of thirty years, Doris, and I are both short in stature. In fact we have to sit on something while driving in order to see properly and Webster's has been our booster seat of choice for many, many years. In our early years of marriage, like many young couples, we could only afford the paperback edition. Last year on the day of our wedding anniversary, my ever so thoughtful Doris presented me with this deluxe, leather bound edition! I wept with joy and thought only in America, only in America!

The print in this book is a bit on the pale side and it is surprising how often the word I want is not in this dictionary. I much prefer The New Oxford American Dictionary.

It is what it is: a light, compact, very affordable dictionary. If that's all you need (or if it's all you can afford) I encourage you to buy it. That's why I bought it. I think it would be great for kids in junior high and high school. For the writers, learners of English, speakers, students, and everyone else who needs detailed definitions of obscure words, a few synonyms and accurate pronunciations, save your pennies until you can buy a giant American Heritage! American Heritage is the Cadillac of dictionaries. Since this Webster's is compact, it doesn't have a single illustration, and if you're like me you need to see a thing to understand it. The pronunciation key is a little inadequate, if not plain wrong. In what part of the country do the words "law," "all," "horn," and "oar" all have the same vowel sound in them? The bottom line is: it's OK for most and aggravating for the rest of us.
