Overview

The classic reference work, in an edition first published before 1923. As a Word document, the file is over 14,000 pages long. We have added over 6,000 links to help you navigate to the word you want. (Searching for a word would take you to any instance of that word in definitions, not the word you want defined). With this version, you click on the first letter, then the first two letters, then on the word that's closest to to the one you want (like the guide words at the heads of pages in a printed dictionary).

What were these people thinking? I could go to my old websters book and have an answer almost immediately, am i missing something?

I expected to be able to type in a word and go right to it. Not so. I can look up something faster with a hard copy than this.

Open the book then pour some coffee and wait for almost 43,000 pages to load before using links to navigate. I wanted this so that when i play boggle i can look up words without carrying a dictionary, but ereader dictionaries haven't evolved a user friendly way to search yet. "Find" is impractical because if the word you want is part of another word definition, you will link to something very unlike your intended search. Worth 99 cents, but patience mandatory.

I believe you will find it much easier and faster if you do a little dictionary preparitory work before using your new dictionary. Use the Highlights functionality to create links to each letter of the alphabet. Do the following after you purchase thi dictionary: 1. Open the the dictionary 2. Touch the page and tap the Contents button 3. Select the Contents tab and locate the letter A 4. Tap the letter on the Contents page to navigate to that page 5. Touch anad hold your finger over the letter at the top of the page
