Webster's what? "Webster's" is no more descriptive of which dictionary you're talking about than "Ford" is to what kind of car you're driving. The Webster name is a generic one that is affixed to practically any standard dictionary (Webster's New World, Merriam-Webster, etc.) to give the buyer a sense that it is a "real" dictionary. For all the word is worth, I could call my collection of stupid definitions ( http://www.geocities.com/lmc2124/definitions.html ) "Webster's Dictionary of Funny Definitions" without worrying about stepping on someone's trademark. The story behind why that is long and obscure, which obviously means there's a whole page about it on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Webster%27s .
