Editorial Reviews

Review

The deluxe electronic version of Webster's dictionary provides definitions for over 160,000 words; but its finest attribute lies in its wealth of specialized information and usage searches which lend to leisure browsing as much as reference referral. It's not often that you can say a reference dictionary can do both; but the electronic version here provides a wealth of intriguing details; from word origin definitions to special searches for rhyming words and phonetics. -- Midwest Book Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary (Deluxe Audio Edition) is a great learning tool for all ages. Not only are you able to see a word's definition, its pronunciation, its function, its etymology,and its date, you'll hear the word too. Which saves you time trying to pronounce the word yourself. Also, there are great games to play which can enhance your knowledge in other areas of learning. My only regret is that I never had this as a child growing up. Yet, as I stated earlier, it is a great learning tool for all ages.

I just wanted to say that I've been using this software at work (with Office 2000, on a computer with a Pentium III) for a while now, and so many people have been using mine that we're ordering more copies for everyone else. I've never had a problem with it and the one time I had to call tech support, they were extremely helpful. The MW link did indeed work. Love it, love it, love it. My assistant is getting it for his kids.

In addition to the authoritative, comprehensive nature of this audio CD dictionary/thesaurus, the Merriam-Webster electronic dictionary has an advantage (over American Heritage, for example) that I was able to copy the pronunciation files "by hand" from the CD ROM to the default loading directory. Therefore, I can use the dictionary full-featured entirely off hard drive C:, which frees the CD ROM for concomitant applications such as background music accompaniment. Note that this comment applies to my current version, which is 1.5 (I am buying a newer version now).
