Advanced English Dictionary now available for 9500/9300

jDictionary Mobile have just released their excellent Advanced English Dictionary for the Nokia 9500/9300. AED is not only a very concise English dictionary, but actually more like an encyclopedia. It contains up to 140,000 entries and more than 1.4 million words.

Advanced English Dictionary is distinguished from the other (paper, electronic) dictionaries in many ways. Not because it contains far more words than a conventional paper dictionary, but because it uses a radically new approach and technology called WordNet. Instead of just listing the words and their definitions, Advanced English Dictionary shows how every word is linked to another. Type in the word "tree" and you will get not only the definition, synonyms and opposites, but the hypernyms (a tree is a kind of what?), meronyms (what are the parts of a tree?) and more. You can also find a list of hundreds of trees, from yellowwood to the Tree of Knowledge, and even all words that contain the letters t-r-e-e. This WordNet approach will help you to understand the meanings of words better. Linguists call WordNet project one of the biggest leaps for dictionaries since scholars sat down to write the epic Oxford English Dictionary

  • One of the biggest database
    Advanced English Dictionary uses one of the biggest English database. It contains up to 140,000 entries and more than 1.4 million words (both American and British English).
  • Links between words
    More than 250,000 links between definitions. There are 18 kinds of links. Almost every definition contains links to other definitions and all of them are sorted into folders.
    For example, the 'Parts' folder of Brazil contains links to Rio, Santos, Amazon river and so on.
  • Accurate content
    Clear and precise definitions. You can use them as reference. The content was developed by the Cognitive Science Laboratory at Princeton University.
  • Spectacular
    It contains not only hundreds of thousands of English words and definitions but names of famous persons, dates, geographical locations, technical and scientific terms and more.
  • Easy-to-use
    Advanced English Dictionary incorporated a powerful, internet browser like user-interface on which you can efficiently reach what you are mostly interested in. It's so intuitive that you won’t need to wade through manuals before you start.
  • Lots of sample usages
    Sample sentences show you how to use the words in your own speaking and writing.
  • Fast
    Fast look-ups, snappy user interface, smoothly scrolling screens.
  • State-of-the-art compression technology
    It keeps the database as small as possible so that it fits your device memory conveniently.
  • GUI designed for Nokia 9300/9500 Communicators
    The user interface of Advanced English Dictionary follows the Nokia style standards.
"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully." -Emerson
