    "A really nice desktop tool, very handy."

    April 18, 2011  |   By bruce_nevin

    Version: Random House Webster's Unabridged Dictionary - WG 4.7

    Pros

    Drag words from any application. Compact, fast, with a total index, including the definitions (14 million words). Wildcard search. Incredibly handy for unexpected uses that would never get you to pull the dictionary off the shelf and turn pages.

    Cons

    Some of the pronunciation symbols are funky: uy in ice, aw in ball, o in ox, euh as in duh, but the key is displayed when you roll your mouse over a syllable. I don't hear audio as promised in the welcome msg.

    Otherwise, what's not to like?

    Summary

    You can search definitions as well as headwords. I don't know how they do their compression, but it's very impressive. According to the Random House website's description, the RH Unabridged is over 2200 pages of fine print, 315,000 entries, 750,000 example phrases and sentences, some 14 million words in all. Yet this tiny application includes all this content and an index of every word and returns results with blazing speed. When I'm on someone else's computer I realize how much I have come to depend on this handy little tool. Someone should buy it and put it everywhere! C'mon Google! In the meantime, get it for yourself. You'll be glad you did.

    Version: Random House Webster's Unabridged Dictionary - WG 4.4

    Pros

    Word usage.

    Cons

    Lacks complete word audio pronounciation. Mariam Webster offers this feature.
