Descriptionary, Third Edition contains thousands of descriptions of terms organized into more than 20 subject categories. Alphabetized definitions of related words are broken down into subjects and sub-headings, making it easy for readers to find the words they need. This indispensable third edition contains an expanded and updated section on technology, including computers and the Internet, as well as many new sections.
