My device is a Kindle 3.3 (611680021). I do not have any "change primary dictionary" option showing up in my settings page.

Any leads? I could not find much on this on any discussion thread.

I look forward to being able to use my Latin and English dictionaries depending on the text.

Thank you for any help!

While in the Settings screen, press Menu. A menu should pop up that will allow you to change your dictionary.

Aha! That is too funny. Either I did not notice it or nobody included that instruction before!

Gratias multas tibi ago!

Problem solved.

Thank you so very much, I have been trying for hours to sort this out, and as the other person said nobody else thought to say press Menu in the Settings screen. I was about to jump up and down on my Kindle so you saved its life. Thanks again

That does not work for Paperwhite. It only shows one dictionary available for each language. So, since I'm reading Patrick O'Brian which uses many English phrases and words, I went in and changed my primary language to English (UK). I still didn't get a "real" English dictionary. ARGH.

That's funny; I know i have the OED selected for my Paperwhite. Perhaps I had to download it first?

It hasn't worked with my graphite.
