Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary and Thesaurus

The online Collegiate Dictionary is based on the print version of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, Tenth Edition. It includes the main A-Z listing of the Collegiate Dictionary, as well as the Abbreviations, Foreign Words and Phrases, Biographical Names, and Geographical Names sections of that book. It also includes 1,000 illustrations and 25 tables. Selected sections of the Collegiate Dictionary, notably the Signs and Symbols section, are omitted because they include special characters and symbols that cannot readily be reproduced in HTML.
