AMERICAN HERITAGE DICTIONARY

We are all defined by what we say and the words we use to express ourselves. And today – through texts, tweets, emails, blogs and the like – our thoughts and words are shared more frequently, and more broadly, then ever before. This truth is what inspired the campaign, You Are Your Words, for the launch of the new American Heritage Dictionary. To bring this idea to life in a fun, interactive way, people were invited to a website where they could create a portrait of themselves using the words they felt best illustrated who they were. Over 8,000 unique portraits were created by people who visited the site, each using words from tweets, posts, blogs, song lyrics – whatever each person felt best defined who they were.
