Synopsis

The classic reference work, in an edition first published before 1923. As a Word document, the file is over 14,000 pages long. We have added over 6,000 links to help you navigate to the word you want. (Searching for a word would take you to any instance of that word in definitions, not the word you want defined). With this version, you click on the first letter, then the first two letters, then on the word that's closest to to the one you want (like the guide words at the heads of pages in a printed dictionary).

    Disappointed

    I thought it would a searchable app style dictionary. In order to use this you to use it as a regular tangible book dictionary, making it very tedious to use. By the time I find the word I want I am no longer in the mood to read the book.

    browsing not as advertised

    This book does not actually contain the browsing links it describes (i.e. select first letter of the word, then second letter of the word). You can only jump to the beginning of a particular letter, which means you've got to rely on regular searching (which, as they note, brings up all instances of the word, even those used in defining other words).
