Merriam-Webster's Unabridged Dictionary
Having a digital dictionary can be very helpful, especially since it is easier to consult than a traditional one. Merriam-Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary is a nice tool that comes with an extensive word library that should easily cover anything you are curious about.
The program has a simple interface that should be easy to figure out, thanks to the intuitive layout.
Once launched, the program initiates the indexing, thus getting all the words from the online library. While Merriam-Webster is one of the best known English dictionaries in the world, it is also one of the most trusted knowledge sources.
The app enables you to scan through the words in the dictionary either by using the scroll of the mouse or by using the built-in search feature. Once it locates the desired word, you can double-click on the entry and view the definitions and all the word’s forms. Some of the words are active links, which means that clicking them takes you to another definition window.
A great number of words included in the dictionary also come with a sound bite that lets you know the correct form of pronunciation.
Some options are available for this tool. For instance, the history log and the bookmarks can be sorted by creation time or alphabetically. The font type and size can be selected for both the app’s interface and for the individual entries.
All in all, Merriam-Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary is a great tool that can be quite useful to have around. Inexperienced users shouldn’t have any troubles while installing and working with this utility, thanks to the intuitive layout and its overall simplicity.
