Dictionaries are most often collections of words in one or more specific languages, usually arranged in alphabetical order, providing information like word meanings and usage. Some dictionaries include information more commonly found in encyclopedias. Encyclopedias are collections of information on terms and concepts, and, alongside definitions, they also include more in-depth general information on a topic. Encyclopedias can be general or subject-specific.
