Sorry, but USA dictionaries don't count for the genuine English language..
So "An Encyclopedia Britannica Company" is not an acceptable English language reference?!
And if you only use English..( as in dictionaries printed in and to be used in England ..the country of origin of the English language ) dictionaries..you won't find the illiterate word of linguistically illegitimate origins "pedigreed"..
Really? I guess you should go and check your Oxford Dictionary [oxforddictionaries.com] before making such sweeping statements.
Sheesh! No wonder the British Empire fell apart. ;)
