I have an old Kramer's (older XX but not XIXC spelling; there are newer editions), pretty standard, and an emergency pocket Hugos ($4.50 a few years ago), but it doesn't get into many subtleties. I checked; they offer a plethora. I felt it would be presumptuous to point out to Herman that Ann Arbor is home to the _original_ Borders (he's lived there a couple years now and has surely been downtown.....); also that UM offers Dutch, consequently there may be used dictionaries floating around.
