    It's a made up term alluding to words and wisdom. You'd have to read the preface to find out what they are claiming with the title.

    Re: Longman Wordwise Dictionary

    If you are streetwise, you are able to cope with the rougher sides of life, so if you're wordwise, I would take it that you can handle the full-on reality of the meanings of words, and were able to use these meanings in many situations. A wordwise person won't be fooled easily.
