Subject: Review of American Dictionaries
Question: I have read many reviews of American dictionaries by non-experts,
but do you know of any by experts? I am trying to answer the
question: are all American dictionaries equally good, or do
professional linguists consider one of them to be the best? In
other words, does it really matter which dictionary you use? (I am
an editor, and dictionaries are crucial for settling editing
wars.)
