Book Description:
Specially designed for students in grades 6−9, The American Heritage Student Dictionary covers the words that students need to know. With more than 74,000 age-appropriate words and 32,000 example sentences showing words used in context, the dictionary brims with vocabulary reflecting recent cultural and scientific developments. Definitions are phrased in a way young people can readily understand. A full-color page design with vivid graphics provides a powerful platform for developing a more sophisticated vocabulary.

  • Over 2,000 new words and senses make this the most up-to-date dictionary for today’s students.
  • New entries include such words as exoplanet, golden goal, nanobot, and zipline as well as new meanings such as cloud (computing) and viral (marketing).
  • Stunning contemporary design showcases 2,000 full-color photographs, illustrations, and diagrams that support the definitions.
  • Brand-new program of 200 quotations demonstrates how the very best young-adult authors have chosen their words for maximum effect.
  • Over 400 feature notes help students develop a deeper understanding of English by explaining word usage, word history, word building, synonyms, and science terms.
  • Still more features include biographical and geographical entries on people and places that are important in the curriculum. A program of “soundalikes,” like cache/cash and hoard/horde, alerts students to homophones that are easy to confuse and misuse. Up to date, easy to use, and fun to browse, this dictionary is a phenomenal resource for budding readers and writers.
