"One category of computer software which often receives little attention is the world of the dictionary. Whilst this type of utility might not seem particularly interesting, dictionary software is an important tool for writers and students. If you are learning a new language or want to check the meaning of a word or phrase, a good dictionary tool will be very useful.

"Many people use a traditional dictionary primarily for checking the spelling of a word. However, lots of computer software includes built-in spelling checking, often on-the-fly. The tools featured in this article offer far more functionality than mere spell-checking. Here you will find software that can actually transform the way that you write.

"The Linux operating system offers an impressive range of versatile dictionary tools which can look up words and phrases for different languages in multiple dictionary file formats, as well as utilising online sites such as Wikipedia and Wikitionary."
