I am looking for a free English- English dictionary on Mac, Could you help me?
Is /Applications/Dictionary.app not enough?
1) It's Mac not MAC: they mean different things
2) Is there something wrong with the built-in one? Dictionary.app in /Applications...
I think the built-in one is great als.
But what is meant by an English-English dictionary, as opposed to an English dictionary? I know what a French-English or Japanese-English dictionary is, but I'm not 100% sure what an Eng-Eng dictionary is.
Do you mean that you want a dictionary specifically intended for use by someone who is not a native speaker of English (I think there are some dictionaries specifically built for people trying to bulk up their English vocabulary?)....
He wants an English dictionary as opposed to an American English dictionary which is unfortunately what is built into Mac OS X.
Or at least that is how I read it...
It knows about colour as well as color...
Dictionary.app redirects British spellings for words.
Is that term used in the UK, as opposed to "UK English" or "British English" or something of the like? In my defense I googled it and found the term used very infrequently, and only in the context of English as a Second Language.
We just tend to call it English. Yours would be American or American English.
Nationalistic posturing aside, English is a language; the American, Austrailian, British, Indian, etc. variants are properly called dialects.
If you can't grasp that, then you really don't understand English, or probably any other language.
Or Simplified English
From: Get Leopard to use British English spelling?
you are right, but I don't like the interface design of buit-in Application.
do you know another option?
I mean something like this; don't get you in trouble
