Usage Notes in the Oxford American Dictionary.
Berner, R. Thomas
Journal of General Education, v33 n3 p239-46 Fall 1981
Compares the "Oxford American Dictionary" with the "American Heritage Dictionary." Examines the dictionaries' differences in philosophies of language, introductory essays, and usage notes. Concludes that the "Oxford American Dictionary" is too conservative, paternalistic, and dogmatic for the 1980s. (DMM)
