Description

The dictionary has an incredible one-third of the coverage of the 20-volume Oxford English Dictionary. It also includes all words in current English since 1700 to the present day, plus the vocabulary of Shakespeare, the Bible and other major works in English, written before 1700. With new coverage of global English, as well as slang, dialect, technical, historical, and literary terms, rare and obsolete words, the Sixth Edition of the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary contains more than 600,000 words, phrases and definitions. The entries provide coverage of the language from the entire English-speaking world: from North America and the UK to South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the Caribbean. It has been fully updated with 2,500 new words and meanings, based on ongoing research at Oxford Dictionaries and the Oxford English Corpus.

Reviews

  • Annoying forces review!

    I don't write reviews, but this app keeps insisting that I do, so here goes: whoever at Oxford University Press authorized this harassing popup made a terrible mistake. It has changed what would have been a positive experience into a negative one! - autor:MSSop - title:Annoying forces review!

    This is probably my best buy ever. Whenever I am curious about a word, I can trust that the Oxford Shorter Dictionary will provide the answer. - autor:Eivind T - title:Most comprehensive dictionary on the market

  • OED Review

    They should try to update the app as much as they do on their OED website. It’s a great app if they fine-tune it. But overall, you have a great chunk of words in this app, with etymologies and such. If you’re a lover of words, the price is worth it. If you’re a layman that just looks up words on the side, not worth it. - autor:Barnabbus - title:OED Review

    I use this Dictionary frequently and consistently when we are playing word games in the evening. I find it very helpful. I’ve found words that I could not find in my paper dictionary which is a very good college Dictionary. - autor:Big Red Dog - Clifford - title:Clifford

  • Not good enough

    By 1
    The Oxford content is first-rate, but there is no way to look up words from other apps—something that many other dictionary apps provide. Also, the MobiSystems interface feels like shareware. It is bloated, clumsy and, at times, slow. On startup, the splash screen displays for way too long. The app constantly nags you to "rate 5 stars." MobiSystems, get serious! - autor:As de corazones - title:Not good enough
