This updated version of the 2000 original is still the only complete resource on the market for finding word parts needed to express a concept. Aside from catering to those who wish to expand their vocabulary, the purpose of this dictionary is to provide convenient word parts to those who may be interested in inventing or deciphering words bearing an established and embedded meaning. Like the first edition, this work is split into three parts presenting the prefixes, suffixes, combining forms, and roots that fit together to form words in English. Part I, the Dictionary proper, provides an alphabetical listing of nearly 4,700 word parts, each entry including a brief definition and two examples of words using that unit. This section benefits from several additions, the most notable of which are embedded etymologies for each entry. Part II, the Finder, is a reverse dictionary of word parts allowing users to start with a meaning or concept and then find word parts which express that meaning. Still the only reverse dictionary of its kind, Part II is updated with over 1,000 new search terms. Part III collects word parts in another reverse dictionary under 18 convenient categories. Each pre-existing category has been expanded when possible, and three entirely new categories have also been added (Eating, Experts, and Measurement Science).

One of the outstanding problems of the biologist, whether he be beginning student or specialists, is that of understanding technical terms. The best way to understand and remember technical terms is to understand first their component parts, or roots. This dictionary has been designed primarily to meet the needs of the beginning student, the medical student, and the taxonomist, but it should be of value to all biologists.

Taking a holistic approach to developmental reading, ACTIVATE: COLLEGE READING is the first book in a 3-book series. It guides students through a stepped and incremental approach, activating background or prior knowledge as many of the skills students need to become stronger readers are skills they already possess and use on a daily basis. Often using popular media as a springboard, Dole and Taggart show students how the skills used when watching television or movies can easily transfer to their reading. Reviewers have lauded the inclusion of varied, interesting readings that will stimulate students' interest in reading and will provide them with background knowledge needed for future college courses.

“We think of English as a fortress to be defended, but a better analogy is to think of English as a child. We love and nurture it into being, and once it gains gross motor skills, it starts going exactly where we don’t want it to go: it heads right for the goddamned electrical sockets.” With wit and irreverence, lexicographer Kory Stamper cracks open the obsessive world of dictionary writing, from the agonizing decisions about what to define and how to do it to the knotty questions of ever-changing word usage. Filled with fun facts—for example, the first documented usage of “OMG” was in a letter to Winston Churchill—and Stamper’s own stories from the linguistic front lines (including how she became America’s foremost “irregardless” apologist, despite loathing the word), Word by Word is an endlessly entertaining look at the wonderful complexities and eccentricities of the English language.

This dictionary explains the original meanings and correct use of the 500 Greek and Latin words and word parts that make up 98% of all medical terms used today. It stimulates better, quicker comprehension of medical terminology with less grinding memory work and is the ideal way for students to learn how medical words are formed from Latin and Greek roots and how to construct a medical vocabulary for both old and new medical words. It shows how to break long medical words into their simple Greek and Latin roots and helps solve the mystery of medical jargon by supplying a logical system for understanding terminology. Also, it is the first work of its kind to open up access for doctors to understanding the whole of medical terminology, regardless of specialty. And because it is a totally new dictionary readers can be assured of learning true etymologies and accurate meanings instead of the notoriously inaccurate and misleading derivations copied from one so-called standard dictionary to the other over the years. Example: "cholecystectomy": chole = gall + cyst = bladder + ec = out + tomy = cutting; so cholecystectomy is the surgical excision, or cutting out, of the gallbladder!
