This is a Pocket PC reissue of the ninth edition of the world's longest-established pocket English dictionary by Oxford University Press. It is one of the new generation Oxford dictionaries derived from the database of the highly acclaimed New Oxford Dictionary of English and is particularly user friendly with its elegant open design, with different elements starting on new lines. It offers excellent coverage of English as an international language and thousands of examples illustrate idiomatic usage. All irregular noun, verb, and adjectival inflections are spelled out in full, while guidance on grammar and good usage is provided by in-text notes. Additional features include Wordbuilder boxes giving information on related words and thematic tables on subjects such as countries, chemical elements, and nationalities.

Key features include:

  • Up-to-date and accessible information on the core vocabulary of current English
  • Clear layout with each new section (phrases, derivatives, usage notes, etymologies, wordbuilder) on new line
  • Usage notes included, giving clear guidance on points of grammar and usage
  • In-text lists and tables focusing on core study subjects
  • Pronunciation feature for any word that might cause difficulty
  • Greater clarity into etymologies

Of the 10 or so words that I first checked for meaning they were not to be found. I am not studying science just reading everyday literature. Sorry it is not for me.It was easy to install and simple to use though.

Pros
  • easy to use
Cons
  • insufficient words
