We’re proud and pleased to announce that we now have live on Answers.com six new reference titles. We dare you to come up with a common theme for all of them; but even if you don’t, you’ll still enjoy learning to rhyme popes, using modern slang, in British places while pretending to peruse biochemistry textbooks (but really reading Australian literature).
So here they are for your browsing convenience:
- Dictionary of Rhymes: Answers the question “What rhymes with X?” for 45,000 different terms. (British pronunciation, though.) Try out bedpan, advertiser, and alimony.
- Dictionary of Modern Slang: Have a butcher’s at this stonking dictionary of modern slang.
- Dictionary of Popes: A Who’s Who of popes and antipopes, detailing the family, social background, pre-papal career and activities in office of every pope from St. Peter to Pope Benedict XVI.
- Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology: A comprehensive survey of modern biochemistry and molecular biology, including details of biochemical substances and the processes in which they are involved, methods and concepts in molecular biology, and definitions of biochemical symbols and abbreviations. Examine mixed indicator, self-absorption, and glucose transporter.
- Dictionary of British Place Names: The meaning and origin of over 14,000 place-names, tracing their development from earliest times to the present day. Go to Briantspuddle, Glenanne, and Kingstanding.
- Companion to Australian Literature: A comprehensive record of Australian writing from the beginning of the European settlement to the end of the 20th century. Read about Applestealers, The Magic Pudding, and Tarella Quin.
As always, we aim to answer. Happy reading.
