Description

The American Heritager Dictionary of the English Language has distinguished itself for decades by offering clear, precise, and comprehensible word definitions and usage guidance. The most recent Fourth Edition, on which this calendar is based, offers more information about the English language in a more accessible format than any other dictionary. For the twelfth year, this calendar introduces a different, functional word and its definition each day. Many definitions also include the word's etymology, its synonyms, and a note relating to its usage, history, or regional variation. The definitions on the Saturday pages are accompanied by illustrations. Each Sunday page features a multiple-choice word quiz in which a definition is posed as a question on the front and the correct answer is provided on the back. Readers will discover the richness of the English language in new ways with this calendar.show more
