The work of more than 250 lexicographers in 10 countries, the Encarta World English Dictionary is the first reference work that traces the global use of English in its written, spoken and electronic forms.
With each word newly defined, the Encarta World English Dictionary is the most up-to-date dictionary on the market and will offer a unique perspective on English as the world’s language.
Launched in 1993 on CD-ROM, Encarta was initially based on the Funk & Wagnalls Encyclopedia and later augmented with the inclusion of Collier's and New Merit Scholar's Encyclopedias.
With approximately 60,000 articles, compared to Wikipedia's nearly three million, Encarta was discontinued in 2009.
