I heard about the fourth edition of this dictionary, but there is no information on the website http://www.m-w.com

I have both the second and third editions of this dictionary and I would like to see a new edition, after almost 40 years. Any information?

Another 7-10 years... Aug 28, 2004

Merhaba Selçuk.

A reader posted this on Amazon.com on April 4, 2004:

"A recent newspaper article stated that they don't plan to release the fourth edition of this dictonary for another 7 to 10 years. We're already looking at a dictionary that's 45 years old and it'll be 52+ years in age before it gets an update?"

This is third-hand information, but it's the best I could find.

Going by the comments on that page, I'd say this is a real gripe among Webster's users.

Aziz
