OS X Dictionary App Brings Terminology For improved Experience
Who loves the built in dictionary in Macs? I know I do, well it is one of the most powerful and useful service ever.
Of course this does not limit you just the definitions but also expands to Wikipedia entries and thesaurus. The OS X adds on a new awesome feature ‘terminology’ which has doubled the power of the app and made it more useful.
The Terminology is perhaps the most easiest to install, it comes free of cost and as an add-on from Agile Tortoise within the Dictionary app pre-installed. It gives you more information than required and does your work more efficiently.
The new add on Terminology is found on the basis of Princeton University’s project ‘WordNet’, English Language’s lexical database which is huge, according to the Princeton University WordNet’s official website
“WordNet is a large lexical database of English. Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms (synsets), each expressing a distinct concept. Synsets are interlinked by means of conceptual-semantic and lexical relations. The resulting network of meaningfully related words and concepts can be navigated with the browser. WordNet is also freely and publicly available for download. WordNet’s structure makes it a useful tool for computational linguistics and natural language processing.”
This new feature conveys better understanding of the word in regards with the relationship, definitions and synonyms. You can install Terminology and uncompress it from the compressed file. For downloading go to Agile Tortoise and follow the steps.
