|Word definition at the bottom|
If you purchase a new Kindle now, it will come with two complete dictionaries, the Oxford Dictionary of English and The New Oxford American Dictionary. Apart from looking up words directly, you can also look for definitions of words in any text, as you read, just by navigating the cursor to it. The word is looked up in the default dictionary.
Here's how to change that default.
- At the Home screen, press Menu.
- Now go to Settings.
- At this page, press Menu again.
- Here, again use the 5-way button to select Change Primary Dictionary.
- Click it
- You'll see a list of installed dictionaries. These include the pre-loaded ones and the ones you have purchased from Amazon.
- Select the one you want.
