iOS Universal Reference
Kernerman Advanced English Dictionary is a user-friendly dictionary designed to address the needs of both English-speakers and learners of English at upper-intermediate and advanced levels.

The dictionary contains over 50,000 main and sub-entries, reflecting the status of English as the international language of communication.
Kernerman Advanced English Dictionary is both a teaching and learning tool. Its goal is not only to provide information, but also to teach active and appropriate use of words and phrases. Meanings are explained in simple vocabulary and grammar, without the use of abstract terms. The typical examples of usage, rich in collocations, are corpus supported and are taken from everyday life. The entries are packed with a wealth of information. Irregular plurals, spellings, pronunciations and phonetic transcriptions are all indicated. Nouns show countability or uncountability. Verb entries show principle parts and irregular spellings. Irregular adjective and adverb comparative and superlative forms are indicated. Usage is indicated by labels such as formal, informal and slang. Notes are provided to cover grammatical problems in English, and other points that may be confusing for non-native users of the dictionary. Both British and American forms, meanings, spellings and pronunciations are given. In addition, the dictionary is both culturally neutral and gender-unbiased.
To avoid overcrowding of the text, each headword starts on a new line, and includes the relevant antonyms, cross-references, etc.
Kernerman Advanced English Dictionary is completely up-to-date, with present-day expressions and vocabulary in science, technology, communications, the arts and humanities. A rich set of appendices provides a wealth of encyclopedic knowledge on a broad variety of topics, while headwords appear in color.
