Library Journal Review

A ``dinky'' is a ``small locomotive'' or ``anything small or compact, particularly a low-power spotlight . . .origin may be from `dink,' which is Scottish for `neat', or from baseball slang--a slow curve, called a `dipsy-doo,' once called a `dinky-doo.' '' Such is the depth and breadth of information found in this comprehensive and well-designed dictionary. It currently has little competition, except for the Longman Dictionary of Mass Media & Communication ( LJ 8/82), an exceptional, if slightly dated, source. With its more than 30,000 total definitions (including jargon and slang) in a wide range of areas including communications technology, marketing, journalism, book publishing, graphic arts, advertising, and printing, this is a necessary purchase for communications collections and most academic and public libraries.-- Jo Cates, Poynter Inst . for Media Studies, St. Petersburg, Fla.
