User: 17. Concerning dictionaries and their proper use, which one of the following statements is most accurate? A. Foreign words are not included in English dictionaries. B. A dictionary's word entry offers a fixed, permanent meaning. C. Formal usage of a word is considered colloquial. D. A syllable is a unit of sound.

Weegy: Answer: B. [ A dictionary's word entry offers a fixed, permanent meaning. Dictionary-a book that lists the words of a language in alphabetical order and gives their meaning, or that gives the equivalent words in a different language. A dictionary (also called a wordstock, word reference, wordbook, lexicon, or vocabulary) is a collection of words in one or more specific languages, often listed alphabetically (or by radical and stroke for ideographic languages), with usage information, definitions, etymologies, phonetics, pronunciations, and other information;[1] or a book of words in one language with their equivalents in another, also known as a lexicon.[1] According to Nielsen (2008) a dictionary may be regarded as a lexicographical product that is characterised by three significant features: (1) it has been prepared for one or more functions; (2) it contains data that have been selected for the purpose of fulfilling those functions; and (3) its lexicographic structures link and establish relationships between the data so that they can meet the needs of users and fulfill the functions of the dictionary. ]
