American Heritage Dictionary is the standard for
technical writers? Yuck! I've always thought
AH is too liberal in its acceptance of new
usages, but perhaps others see this as a plus.

My dic. is Webster's Ninth New Collegiate.

What do others consider the standard to be? What is
taught as the standard to Tech. Comm. students?
