Now available together, the New Oxford American Dictionary, CD and print edition offer complete access to this unrivaled work. Containing more than 250,000 definitions and 9,000 biographical and geographical entries, NOAD provides the most accurate and richly descriptive picture of American English ever offered. The CD-ROM version gives dictionary users what they really need from an electronic dictionary--easy, intuitive interaction with word processing and browser software. The dictionary engine is user-friendly and unobtrusive, allowing users to save the last fifty searches and display the last five, automatically replace words in a document with the words you've found in the dictionary, search for words within an entry, quickly and easily print dictionary entries, and enter your own words into a customizable User Dictionary. These user-friendly characteristics carry-over to the print edition of NOAD. To provide unprecedented clarity, the entries are organized around core meanings, eliminating clutter and confusion, especially in longer entries. Rather than a litany of numbered senses, the structure of each entry plainly shows the major meaning or meanings of the word, plus any related senses, supplemented by illustrative, in-context examples of actual usage. In short, The New Oxford American Dictionary is designed to serve the user clearly, simply, and quickly, with a full measure of information value and precise guidance. Truly a revolution in the art and craft of dictionary-making, The New Oxford American Dictionary CD-ROM and print edition provide the in-depth and up-to-date coverage that all users need and expect--for reading and study, for technical terms, for language guidance. It continues the tradition of scholarship and lexicographic excellence that are the hallmarks of every Oxford dictionary.
