We're trying to choose a dictionary for our department and would like
to hear from you if you either love or hate the one you have.
We would prefer a fairly prescriptive dictionary - one that doesn't
list misspellings. However, we don't necessarily want the most
scholarly or the most intellectual, or one with fancy etymology. We
just need an easy-to-use, accurate, down to earth, day-in, day-out
dictionary. It doesn't even have to be strong in the technical words
category, since we will probably get another book for that purpose.
Thanks in advance,
Cheryl D. Kidder/Senior Information Developer
