User:Rjensen revised the Usage Panel section in a way that added some useful information about the motivations behind the creation of the Usage Panel, but which didn't accurately describe the current panel. I moved some of that information to the "History" section, deleting the "elderly" gibe but retaining the reference to the panelists' linguistic conservatism. I also deleted the totally inaccurate claim that there are 1000 members on the panel, and while I was at it I corrected the "perscriptivism" typo in the citation. Hope that's OK. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 13:28, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
I expanded the template, Template:Dictionaries of English, and added it to this article, and a few others. Does this seem useful? should i add pub dates? is it correct in its categorizing?Mercurywoodrose (talk) 06:13, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
According to Wikipedia's article on Bartleby.com,
- In June 2009, licensed reference works from Columbia University Press and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt were removed from the site "due to financial and usage considerations".
Then this revision of the present AHD article, 17:29, 10 June 2009 made by IP 220.127.116.11,
- "(Commented out ALL Bartleby links. Check yourself: Bartleby has REMOVED AHD from their online-service! A shame, but we have to face the facts.)"
However, The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language is still available online, currently at
Second and later editions
Sentence "The first edition's predecessor titled The American Heritage Dictionary, Second College Edition was ..." must surely mean "The first edition's successor ..." and doesn't need the word "titled." I will pause some days and check back for talk on this point. Kcor53 (talk) 13:27, 8 October 2015 (UTC)kcor53
