* I read with great interest the article written by Janny Scott about marketing of dictionaries ("Publicity Wars Rage Unabridged," May 25).
The use of unorthodox methods of marketing of dictionaries, however, is not a recent development. There is a tract of real estate in rural San Diego County called Dictionary Hill. At the turn of the century, some enterprising dictionary vendors spurred interest in their products by giving away a parcel of land in this tract with every dictionary sold. This marketing device is how the tract acquired its name.
