A colourful and engaging journey through the world.
The Britannica Visual Dictionary incorporates more than 20 000 words and their definitions into 6 000 full-colour illustrations covering a wide variety of objects from all aspects of life.
The first visual dictionary to incorporate real dictionary definitions
Each clear and precise definition has been prepared in cooperation with Merriam-Webster lexicographers. The result is an indispensable visual reference that goes beyond object-identification to answer questions about function, significance, and purpose. The Britannica Visual Dictionary is ideal for teachers, parents, translators, and students.
Unlike conventional dictionaries with A to Z listings, the Britannica Visual Dictionary is organised by subject area. Full-colour pictorial images are grouped into 17 chapters outlining subjects from astronomy to sports, with more complex subjects divided into individual themes.
