Lexicographic works of general scope focus on everyday words and expressions like "table," "high school," and "it's raining cats and dogs," but can also encompass (to a certain extent) technical expressions of general interest (e.g. "information technology," "carbon monoxide," and "luxation"). A well-known English-only general dictionary is the Merriam-Webster's. Basic foreign-language word lists for beginners also qualify as general. This category is intended for specialized works on certain subjects (e.g. topical/thematic vocabularies on food or sports), working-world references (e.g. dictionaries for business travelers, military personnel, or technicians/scientists), and multidisciplinary term banks (those may contain some everyday words, but they offer in-depth coverage of technical fields while general dictionaries do not).
