Examples

  • In all this talk about entries, it must be remembered that the (accepted) practice in counting dictionary entries in the U.S. (and becoming the standard in the U.K. as well) is to count not only headwords, or main entries, but inflected forms, variants, changes in part of speech, run-on words (like cunningly and cunningness under cunning), and list words (like reaccuse and reacquire), which need no definition.
