Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am simply enthusiastic about this software. I was trying the QUICKfind while surfing the Internet and found out that turning on the automatic sound and pointing the mouse on a word, its sound is spoken up by HUMAN voices. I then tried it on a Word document and it happened the same. Everyone who's willing to improve his English pronunciation MUST try it, for it's really worth. I'll advise all foreign languages university students to buy it. The interactive exercises are also worth, as we hear whole sentences, and I like the idea to look for words both by typing in the text and the phonetic symbols. Highly recommended to up-to-date languages lovers. Last but not least, the book contains many words you cannot find on other dictionaries, such as proper names, surnames and cities. There's even my Brescia!

Format: Paperback
Mac users, beware! I have found out the hard way that the CD-ROM included with the 17th edition contains only a Windows version of the software. This information is nowhere in sight (at time of writing) on the product page. Hopefully, the publisher will at least disclose the System Requirements for the software they are selling before actually selling it.

If you study Phonetic or linguistic, this book will be your bible. All the words you need are in this dictionary, written in english phonetic and in american. You have the verbs and their tenses. At my University Marc Bloch in Strasbourg, all the teachers recommend this book. Enjoy.
