I don't have a copy of Merriam-Webster's Third New International (1961, 
1993) dictionary or Webster's New World College Dictionary, Fourth Edition 
(2004) to hand. From your message it looks like the definitions of 
"obsolete", "archaic", etc. for Merriam-Webster's are in the A-Z but the 
same definitions in Webster's New World College Dictionary are in a special 
section. Is that correct? I also assume 1755 is chosen in Merriam-Webster's 
because that was the year Samuel Johnson published his dictionary.
