#1809. American Heritage Dictionary の Notes[dictionary][etymology][link][synonym][thesaurus]


 「#485. 語源を知るためのオンライン辞書」 ([2010-08-25-1]) で触れたが,American Heritage Dictionary of the English Dictionary, 4th ed. (AHD) とその他の辞書に基づいた The Free Dictionary というオンライン辞書がある.AHD は,アメリカの辞書らしく百科事典的な情報や視覚資料が豊富で,私もよく使うお気に入りの辞書だ.紙版は大型だが,読む辞書としてお薦めである.(なお,The Free Dictionary EncyclopediaArticle of the Day というフィードもお気に入り.)
 特に注目したいのが,Notes と呼ばれるコラム的な記事が充実していることだ.Usage Notes, Synonym Notes, Word Histories, Our Living Language, Regional Notes といった5種類の Notes が,延べ1,700以上,辞書中にちりばめられている.以下では,取りこぼれもあるとは思われるが,その大多数へのリンクを拾い出した.長いリストなので,ジャンプのための目次を挙げておく.

 ・ Usage Notes 一覧
 ・ Synonym Notes 一覧
 ・ Word Histories 一覧
 ・ Our Living Language 一覧
 ・ Regional Notes 一覧

 ほかにも,リンク先の Notes 部分のみを抜き出した Notes 集そのものもブラウザ上で閲覧できるように作ってみたが,1.6MBと重めなので,必要に応じてどうぞ.
