This dictionary follows the general pattern of form and content of the large edition, the only difference being the amount of material involved. Definitions are verbatim, and pronunciation is indicated in the same way, but derivations are not given. Many of the tables and plates have been retained, but the latter are reorganized and somewhat simplified. Selection of words to be included in this dictionary was made by an editorial board of experts in various fields, who also added new terms. This edition presents an authoritative reference tool for those who require information in convenient and practical form.
