The normative dictionary of the two preeminent dictionaries of American English is now out in a fifth edition.

It has Semitic roots as well as Indo-European roots. I don't know when that started. I don't remember them in the fourth edition, but they are there.

The word 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' or a variation on it is not in the word list.

This is a very beautiful old book in a very good condition and this is also a good point of view.

I'm still using the edition that has an entry on the Beatles with an accompanying photo of them with their MBEs.

I'm thinking about buying the Fifth Edition. I particularly like the lexicao of Indo-European roots.
