"I applaud this . . . value-centered, family-oriented dictionary."
--The Reverend Billy Graham
A Dictionary Resource for the Whole Family
The aim of Webster's American Family Dictionary is unique and challenging: it is to capture and record the standard vocabulary of American English in a way that reflects the common ethical, moral, religious, social, and civic values of mainstream Americans. It is, in short, both a lexical and cultural record of standard American English at the dawn of the 21st century.
A family reference that goes beyond removing offensive language, Webster's American Family Dictionary reflects the language and cultural values of most American families. While remaining inclusive enough for use through the college level, this new dictionary also covers special categories that are not typically treated in other standard dictionaries, such as:
American history and civics
popular proverbs and sayings
The most comprehensive dictionary of its kind, Webster's American Family Dictionary has 116,000 entries, 135,000 definitions, and 300 illustrations, maps, and charts. In addition, we have included important documents that define American cultural and religious traditions:
Declaration of Independence
Sermon on the Mount
Amendments to the Constitution
Webster's American Family Dictionary provides expanded definitions and biblical references, not typically found in other nonsectarian vocabulary resources, for terms such as burning bush and crown of thorns. Additionally, the Topical Index of Selected Key Terms will provide starting points for further study. Most importantly, definitions and discussions of controversial ideas and entries are treated with sensitivity
The First Modern American Dictionary to Cover the Bible and Our Contemporary Language
Not since Noah Webster created the first American dictionary has a guide to our language covered both important Bible terms and the essential vocabulary of the modern home, school, and office.
The dictionary that reflects your values
A valuable reference for the entire family
Clear definitions essential for understanding difficult and controversial topics
"The new Webster's American Family Dictionary should be very helpful for anyone interested in the full meaning of words, expanded to include their historical, literary, and religious connotations."
"I think Noah Webster would have been proud to see his name affiliated with this dictionary, which is in keeping with his original concept of what a dictionary should be."
