  4. Desk dictionaries Abridged dictionaries, often called desk dictionaries, list 150,000 to 250,000 words and concentrate largely on fairly common words and meanings. A good desk dictionary will serve most reference needs for writing or reading. The following lists dependable abridged dictionaries: • The American Heritage Dictionary • The Random House Webster's College Dictionary • Mirriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary • Concise Oxford English Dictionary Unabridged dictionaries Unabridged dictionaries are the most scholarly and comprehensive of all dictionaries, sometimes consisting of many volumes. They emphasize the history of words and the variety of their uses. An unabridged dictionary is useful when studying a word in depth, reading or writing about the literature of another century, or looking for a quotation containing a particular word. The following unabridged dictionaries are available at most good libraries. • The Oxford English Dictionary, (20 volumes) • The Random House Dictionary of the English Language • Webster's Third New International Dictionary of the English Language

  11. Comparison Suppose you want to look up the word "synecdoche.“ Which of the following scenarios do you prefer? • Find volume 10 of the OED and learn that Wyclif (1338) defined it as "whanne a part is set for al, either al is set for oo par . . ." • Start computer, find CD ROM, load CD ROM, go to OED, step through program, find information, unload CD ROM, turn off computer, file CD ROM, go back to what you were doing in the first place. • Open W3 and read "a figure of speech by which a part is put for a whole (as fifty sail for fifty ships) . . ." W3 is THE dictionary. It belongs in everyone's home. At the listed price it is an incredible bargain. Highly recommended
