9780061125904: The Million Word Crossword Answer Book

The Million Word Crossword Dictionary was hailed by New York Times crossword editor Will Shortz as "the largest, most up-to-date, and most useful" and praised by crossword editors nationwide. Now, noted crossword experts Stanley Newman and Daniel Stark unveil the next tool to send your solving skills soaring. THE MILLION WORD CROSSWORD ANSWER BOOK is a radically comprehensive word finder that you can use when two or more letters of the answer are known. Even easier to use than a crossword dictionary, you can use the two together or separately to power-solve the toughest puzzle!

The 1,000,000-plus entries consist of exhaustive lists of crossword answers from 3 to 7 letters, in which 2 letters are specified. For example, 7-letter answers with H as the second letter and C as a sixth letter will include the words CHALICE and PHYSICS, the proper names EHRLICH and SHYLOCK, and the phrase THIN ICE.

The book s "base lexicon" consists of words and phrases from actual puzzles, representing about 88 percent of all crossword answers--a number untouched by any other reference book--and the inclusion of slang terms and celebrity names give this book the topicality and comprehensiveness you ve come to expect from the Million Word brand.

In addition, a unique crossword answer Glossary section lists more than 20,000 definitions for less common or potentially confusing words and proper names, hand-picked by Stan and Dan based on their expert knowledge of words and terms most likely to stump solvers.

The biggest and most complete answer book ever, THE MILLION WORD CROSSWORD ANSWER BOOK is your master key for unlocking any crossword puzzle."
