(Sample of words not included in this dictionary: amplitude, beguile, crass, drivel, endive, frumpy, guttersnipe.)
However, I'm newly concerned about its accuracy. We were looking up Pluto today. There are actually two errors under Pluto. First, it says "[Pluto] is sometimes considered one of the planets." While true, it would have been better to just call it a dwarf planet. The second error is literally huge: " [Pluto] orbits the sun at an average distance of 3.7 million miles (5.9 million kilometers)." In fact, Pluto's average distance is 3.7 BILLION miles (5.9 billion kilometers) from the sun. Mercury is 35 million miles from the sun. In addition, the other [actual] planets are simply listed with their order of distance from the sun (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc).
