This 10th edition of The Chambers Dictionary offers you for the first time unrivalled coverage of the English language in MobiPocket format for your PDA, desktop PC and smartphone. Over 270,000 definitions of 160,000 different words The Chambers Dictionary remains the dictionary of choice for professional writers, puzzle and wordgame enthusiasts and everyone with a love of words. Now in its tenth edition, it differs from other available dictionaries in providing information on unfamiliar words as well familiar ones: words from our literary heritage, words from the different dialects of English, and words from hundreds of subject areas. In all, there are over 270,000 definitions of 160,000 different words.

While the traditional Chambers virtues of being informative, witty and authoritative have been retained, the dictionary has been updated to provide a clear and modern text for today's users.
