    This dictionary’s anointment as “official” by major American news outlets means it’s authoritative, up to date and as complete as most of us will ever need. It also guarantees, if you follow it, your writing will be in sync with what millions of educated readers see in newspapers, magazines, books and serious websites every day. I find ithat the derivations and usage notes provide especially helpful guidance.
