ILC: Not having thumbed through the 20-vol set, I don't know what I'm missing, perhaps, but my parents have a huge (2,000+ pg.) dictionary they got as a wedding present. I have looked through it and while it is nice to have 100 definitions for one word, generally 90% of them aren't definitions I would have any reason to use, so I don't really miss not having them in my measly 200,000-word single-volume dictionary (or however many words are in the dictionary).

What I really need is a dictionary that will tell me what word I'm *trying* to think of that's just on the tip of my brain....
