Crossworders' Dictionary and Gazetteer

Version 5

Two million word crossword puzzle dictionary.

Crossworders' Dictionary and Gazetteer overview

Crossworders' Dictionary and Gazetteer 5 is a Two Million word crossword puzzle dictionary.

This fifteen thousand (15,000) page digital dictionary/gazetteer (version 5) supplements all other paper crossword dictionaries and is by far the largest and most complete work of its kind. It is the heavyweight of crossword references. The dictionary is over thirteen thousand (13,000) pages long and the gazetteer content is over fifteen hundred (1,500) pages. The software allows for extensive easy searching and browsing, including specialized gazetteer (geography) sub-searches to find rivers, cities, language, coin, measure, VIPs and much more. The total work contains over two hundred and eighteen thousand (218,000) individual look-up words with over two million total words including look-up word definitions (clues) and supporting information, all cross referenced. The included word entries are timely (year 2011) and extend back over seventy years to represent more puzzler clues than can be found in anything available. Also included is almanac material (i.e. Nobel Prize & Academy Award winners, Shakespeare, sports, film and songs) and extensive foreign language content. A new feature of version 5 allows the user to generate their own dictionary of up to fifty thousand (50,000) look-up words with an allotment of 50 characters for clues for each look-up word. This user created private dictionary has the same search and sort functions as that of the main dictionary.
