Merriam-Webster English Dictionary 6.3

An application that will allow you to learn proper English
While reading books or while surfing the Internet, you might encounter words that are unknown to you or that you aren’t sure about their meaning. Merriam-Webster English Dictionary is a tool that can come in handy whenever you need help.

The app has a simple interface, with a clean layout that should be easy to navigate. The dictionary contains over 75.000 definitions with over 5.000 usage examples.

Merriam-Webster is one of the best known dictionaries in the world. The application is particularly useful because it is extremely easy to access.

The program lets you look for the words through a search bar, but also by scrolling through the entire word collection. The results are displayed in the same frame, complete with all possible meanings, pronunciation instructions and word origins. Some even come with an audio file to help you pronounce the word better.

Since the app comes only with an English-English dictionary, additional dictionaries can be included. The program supports NBK and USD file formats. However, you can also manually create your own dictionary.

The app allows you to view the search history, bookmarked words and even any comments made for various words. Unlike other similar software, this program lets you copy the text. Thus, the definitions can be pasted in any text file.

All in all, Merriam-Webster English Dictionary is a nice tool that can be extremely useful. Inexperienced users should quickly be able to figure out how to work with this software, thanks to its intuitive layout.
