Unlike other crossword puzzle dictionaries, Random House Webster's Crossword Puzzle Dictionary includes thorough coverage of the new words and the popular culture terms that are an integral part of the new wave of American crossword puzzles. Movies, television, sports (including teams and stadiums), music, literature, actors and actresses, art, brand names and nicknames, and the Internet - all of these are given the space they need based on what really goes into puzzles today, not on outdated ideas of what a crossword puzzle dictionary should contain.
