rating: 0+x

\he-te-ro-däks, dik-sh-ner-ē
Etimology: from Gk. heterodoxos, from heteros "the other" + doxa "opinion." + from M.L. dictionarium "collection of words and phrases," from L. dictionarius "of words," from dictio "word." Probably first Eng. use in title of a book was in Sir Thomas Elyot's "Latin Dictionary" (1538) though L. Dictionarius was so used from c.1225.
Function: Noun
A reference book that you can read non-linearly and acquire information through the definition of words by its significance and meaning, rather than its full definition.
