a book or compact disc containing the words of a language arranged alphabetically with their meanings

COMMENT: The term ‘dictionary’ really applies to a book where the words are defined, but not necessarily explained; an ‘encyclopedia’ is a book where the words are explained, but not always defined. A ‘Dictionary of Gardening’ is probably in fact an encyclopedia, since it may give details of how to grow plants, rather than defining what each plant or process is. This present dictionary has many encyclopedic sections, such as this one.
