Favorite Dictionaries for Writers

Writers need at least one hard copy, old fashioned, book-type dictionary. Online dictionaries are fine for double checking spelling and definitions, but for serious word work, a dictionary you can page through is the only answer. Here are my three favorite dictionaries:

With 165,000 entries, and 100,000 changes in this edition, plus reference material and even some black and white illustrations, this is my favorite when I want to look something up in a book.

Buy the Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 11th Edition now!

 

For years I lugged around the huge version of the Oxford English Dictionary... in fact, I still have the magnifying glass I needed to read it. Then I discovered this shorter version... which is simply wonderful for a word lover.

Buy the The New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary now!

 

The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language is another favorite desktop, although if I had to have only one, it would be the Collegiate listed above.
