HyperDic is a hyper-dictionary: a new kind of dictionary with interesting possibilities offered by the web format. The CD-rom version of HyperDic was derived from a slightly modified version of the WordNet 1.6 databases. Each word entry has its own XHTML page, with links to different sets of related words, like for instance similar, opposite, broader or narrower terms. Words can be looked up in the alphabetical index, or through a JavaScript searchbox.

The relations between 120.000 English words are expressed as web-links, allowing the reader to "surf" on the English vocabulary, with fast and easy "single-click" access to related terms. The word car, for instance, is connected to synonyms like automobile, broader concepts as motor vehicle, and narrower terms like ambulance.

Since HyperDic is a perfectly standard XHTML web text, it can be accessed from any browser, on all modern platforms (Windows, Macintosh, Unix/Linux), without any kind of program installation. Pages can be printed out directly from the browser, or imported into most text processing software, and converted to a wide variety of formats.
