More about dictionaries
I have just purchased the latest Harper Collins Dictionary for
South Africa. They call it the South African version because it
includes some expressions not found in the standard dictionary
such as those that originate from Afrikaans or the Bantu languages.
They produce similar dictionaries for many other countries -
Australia, Canada, and most certainly for the USA. Their
dictionaries come with a CD-Rom discovery which enables you to
search for words on the computer. As it is a windows based program,
it can be integrated with XyWrite, if the latter is running under
XP's command prompt.
I find it works like a charm.
