By using the ISBN number, any bookshop in the world can order the HyperDic CD-rom, but this process can be slow, as they may have to import it through inefficient channels.
A quicker alternative is to buy HyperDic online, directly from us, the publisher. We accept credit card payments, and ship all over the world.
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.
