    In Merriam Webster['s dictionary], ''paradigm'' means . . .

    Hi all,

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/paradigm

    - In Merriam Webster's dictionary, ''paradigm'' means ''a theory or a group of ideas about how something should be done, made, or thought about.''

    My questions are that should I italicize ''Meriam Webster's dictionary''; should I put 's dictionary' after 'Webster' in the sentence?

    Thank you.

    I'd write 'In Merriam Webster's dictionary, 'paradigm' is defined as ...'

    There's no need for italics.
