Attention Technical Communicators:

Many of us use Webster's Collegiate Dictionary. I just needed to look up
the locality of a college and discovered that the "Merriam Webster's
Collegiate Dictionary Tenth Edition" does not have a list of Colleges and
Universities in it's back matter. The Ninth Edition had such a list in
it's back matter. The Preface to the Tenth Edition makes no mention of
this deletion.

How can this prestigious publication have "Collegiate" in it's title when
it no longer lists colleges and universities. I for one protest--bring
back the list of colleges and universities. I think we should all send
Merriam-Webster a message asking them to restore this list in their next

Does anyone know the E-mail address for Merriam-Webster, Incorporated?
