My Kindle reader has a dictionary, can that be supplied for a
Nexus 7 2013 ?

If you put the Kindle app on the Nexus - you'll be able to use the dictionary when you're in that app.

Thank you. I do have the Kindle app. As far as I can see no dictionary. How do I get that, and does it work.
Regards Jørgen

Jørgen - Press on a word within a book and the dictionary will automatically download and define the word.

I am sorry it does not. In the list of content the dictionary is not there. It was not downloaded to my nexus 7 along with the books I already had om my Kindle. So the question is how do I get it downloaded to the nexus 7.

The dictionary is available to define a word within a book being read on the kindle app.

If you want a dictionary for your Nexus, you need an app - Dictionary and Thesaurus

Jørgen, the dictionary will not appear in the list of content downloaded to the device. It hangs about in the background until you long-press a word you want to look up, then the definition pops up in a box in front of the book you're reading.

So you can no longer go straight to the dictionary itself and look up a word? I do it all the time - but I have a KK, not an app. Is that an app thing?

It's only on the apps.

Interesting. Thanks for the info - I did not know that (obviously in light of my first response).

At the end I found out that the problem was, that I did not touch the screen on my Nexus 7 in the propper way. Incidently I holded my finger longer than I had done before. So up came the explanation.
What disturbed me was that there apparently was no dictionary in the library. How could I know. I had my first IBM PC in 1991 and have had several different PC's since then. This Android world is to me a very different world, and I am not all together impressed.
