– Dictionary containing more than 147,000 words
– IPA pronunciations for 87,000 words (IPA stands for International Phonetic Alphabet…ya I didn’t know what it stood for either)
– Built-in hyperlinked thesaurus for more than 28,000 words
– Built-in hyperlinked intelligent spell checker
– Bookmark favorite words for easy recall
