Hundreds of photographs and drawings enhance the text, and several tables such as the periodic table of the elements and a table of units of measurement provide helpful data in a useful visual format. Forming the heart of the dictionary, however, are its more than 70,000 entry words, whose clear, straightforward definitionssupplemented by pronunciations, inflections of irregular verbs and plural nouns, and selected etymologiesmake the American Heritage (R) Desk Dictionary an essential reference for the office, school, or home.
