Dear Joan,

DARE is used extensively by Merriam-Webster for research into
regional terms by definers and for attestations of first use by
daters.  We consider it one of the most important resources in our
editorial library, and one of the two or three most important ongoing
dictionary projects in English.

Best wishes,


Joanne M. Despres, Senior Editor
