Hello,

I'm not sure if this is the correct section for this question, but I was wondering if the Concise Oxford English Dictionary will be available on mobile devices. It does not appear in the Library on my Android devices.

Thanks,

Dan

Hi Dan, sorry it is not available on mobile devices.  You can see that on the product page, as there isn't an iPhone symbol. I have no idea if it will ever be available.

Yes, you are correct, however the word that I was searching "etherialize" was not found in Merriam-Websters Collegiate Dictionary (11th Edition).

Basically, I got on this path while I was reading the editor's introduction in Life Together and Prayerbook of the Bible by Dietrich Bonhoeffer when I decided to search for "etherialize" using the following methods:

  1. Long-press on "etherialize". Click "Info" in the popup. Click "BIble Word Study for 'etherialize'". No results. Usually a Merriam-Webster entry would be in the Definition section
  2. Long-press on "etherialize". Click "Search" in the popup. In the panel that appears, select MW Collegiate Dict (11th Ed) from the drop down menu. No results.

However, when I lookup the word in Logos for Windows, the Concise Oxford English Dictionary opens on the entry for "ethereal" which also lists an alternate spelling "etherial" that Merriam-Webster apparently does not recognize.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Dan

Dan:

Logos 4.6a SR-1 on Windows 7 offers etherialized for search of  etherialize
