Oxford Dictionaries

MPPL now subscribes to Oxford Dictionaries, the online dictionary that does everything you want an online dictionary to do (according to a review I found in Booklist, Sept. 1, 2010). That sounds like a tall order because most people just want spelling and definition, but Oxford Dictionaries surpasses all expectations. Is has not just definitions and spellings but also rhymes, audio files, related words, word origin, examples in sentences, and links to their foreign language dictionaries which are all included in this package. The other dictionaries are French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Chinese, and Arabic. Also, you should check out the Oxford Dictionaries fun, informative and trippy Oxford Words blog.
