New for PocketBible and MyBible: Laridian English Dictionary

Posted on: August 31st, 2010 by Michelle Stramel 7 Comments

A few weeks ago we posted a request on our Facebook page for users to suggest reference titles for us to do for PocketBible. Several people mentioned they wanted an English dictionary, so we went exploring on the Internet and found a database of English words and definitions (WordNet 3.0). With some concentrated effort by our programmers, we now have the Laridian English Dictionary—about 150,000 words and over 200,000 definitions, all indexed to work inside PocketBible or MyBible for quick and easy access to definitions of anything you might be reading that is outside your normal vocabulary.

The Laridian English Dictionary contains entries for almost 150,000 unique words and provides part-of-speech, concise definitions for each sense of usage of the word, and sample sentences when necessary for clarification of meaning. Each entry and its variations (i.e. -ed, -ly, -ing forms of the word) are indexed for easy access using the “look up” functionality built into PocketBible and our other readers.

The Laridian English Dictionary retails for $12.99 and is available for the following platforms:

Palm OS  |  Windows Mobile  |  Windows PC  |  iPhone/iPod touch/iPad
