Acknowledgements (First Edition)

Anthony J. Culyer

I am extremely grateful to Ron Akehurst, Werner Brouwer, Adriana Castelli, Li-Jen Cheng, Karl Claxton, Richard Cookson, Roman Dolinschi, Tina Eberstein, Brian Ferguson, Alastair Fischer, John Frank, William Gnam, Clyde Hertzman, Sheilah Hogg-Johnson, Paul Holyoke, Jerry Hurley, Paul Jacobson, Andrew Jones, Robin Kells, Gisela Kobelt, Andreas Maetzel, Evelyne Michaels, Charles Normand, Adam Oliver, Nirmala Ragbir-Day, Sandra Sinclair, Emile Tompa and Adrian Towse for commenting on various definitions and making suggestions for headwords and phrases to include. A particular debt of gratitude is owed to Martin Forster, Desre Kramer, Robin Pope and Tom Rice for their exceptionally painstaking commentaries. All these friends and their many suggested redraftings have enormously improved the Dictionary’s amplitude, accuracy and accessibility. I have not always followed their advice so, alas, they cannot be held accountable for the Dictionary’s defects. These are entirely my responsibility.
