The Cambridge Dictionary of American English with CD-ROM combines the printed dictionary with a CD-ROM containing the software. The CD-ROM features:

  • Sophisticated indexes that enable fast lookups of words and phrases.
  • Hotspots and hyperlinks that connect entries to pictures and Language Portraits.
  • Personal Notations feature that lets users add their own notes to dictionary entries.
  • Advanced search capabilities that allow for searches by part of speech, grammar code, or usage label, or on particular parts of entries, such as definitions, examples, or idioms.

Both the book and CD feature:
  • Unique organization by meaning. Each meaning is given its own entry, clearly marked with a 'guideword'.
  • Thousands of examples, most of them full sentences, all taken from a database of 100 million words of spoken and written American English, as well as spoken pronunciations.
  • More than 3,000 common idioms, all clearly defined, with examples showing how they are used.
  • Sophisticated 'Language Portraits' that offer in-depth explanations of difficult topics like grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, and spelling.
  • Restricted defining vocabulary--definitions are written using a carefully selected group of 2,000 core words that learners already know.
