Advanced English Dictionary for Mobiles

Advanced English Dictionary
is distinguished from the other (paper, electronic) dictionaries in
many ways. Not because it contains far more words than a conventional
paper dictionary, but because it uses a radically new approach and technology called WordNet.
Instead of just listing the words and their definitions, Advanced English Dictionary
shows how every word is linked to another. Type in the word "tree" and
you will get not only the definition, synonyms and opposites, but the
hypernyms (a tree is a kind of what?), meronyms (what are the parts of
a tree?) and more. You can also find a list of hundreds of trees, from
yellowwood to the Tree of Knowledge, and even all words that contain
the letters t-r-e-e. This WordNet approach will help you to understand
the meanings of words better. Linguists call WordNet project one of the
biggest leaps for dictionaries since scholars sat down to write the
epic Oxford English Dictionary.
