    Ideal for juniors and seniors in high school as well as adults who want to see how their vocabulary skills stack up, 100 More Words Every High School Graduate Should Know is the latest book in the popular 100 Words series from the American Heritage Dictionaries and a sequel to the original title in the series (published in 2002). This book includes one hundred words of varying degrees of difficulty, representing the kinds of words high school students encounter in their classes and on standardized tests. From alacrity to zygote, with stops along the way at eponymous and lambent, the words are invariably intriguing and useful. Each entry includes the definition, pronunciation, and etymology, and often one or more quotations from classical and contemporary authors showing how the word is used in context.
