About 2000 new terms have been added. Though some existing terms have been modified to take account of changed emphases (roller hearth kilns are not the rarities of 30 years ago), very few have been removed. This is a twofold tribute to Dodd's original work. His definitions, concentrating on the essence of the meaning, have stood the test of time, even when the words now have much broader application in details. Where words have become obsolete, it has been thought worthwhile to preserve his accurate and authoritative definitions for historical record.
