With the tips below, you can use MOT even more efficiently.
If you don’t find the word you were looking for with the basic search, you can try the Extendend search. The Extendend search looks up all the occurrences of a word from the whole dictionary content, even from the examples of usage. This way you can find the word even if it doesn’t occur in the actual search entries
Near Matches helps you when you are not sure how to write the word correctly. Near Matches displays words that approximately match the one that is being searched. MOT will especially try to find words that are pronounced in the same way as the word being searched for. For example, if you search for the word, "consious", MOT will suggest the correct word, "conscious".
Combining different dictionaries into a dictionary group
In MOT’s Windows version, you can modify different dictionary groups according your needs. For example, if you want to search at the same time from all of the English dictionaries, you can combine them into one dictionary group. After combining, you can search for the word simultaneously from all the dictionaries in the dictionary group.
You can combine the dictionaries into a dictionary group like this:
1. Select Settings/Select Dictionaries command.
You can find more information on making dictionary groups in the MOT’s Help menu.
