I'm a newbie here and English is not my mother tongue, so I hope you'll be patient with me if I do something wrong.
I use my Kindle 4 mainly to read English books, and I'm always looking up words in the dictionary. But there are two things that bother me about this look-up feature:
1. The painful process of placing the cursor in front of the word once and again.
2. When I come across a word I've never heard before, sometimes it's important that I look up the pronunciation (the phonetic symbols) so that I can really learn it. But to see the pronunciation, I have to go to the "full definition", which takes 2 more steps in the Kindle 4.
Now I'm looking to buy the Kindle Paperwhite. With the touchscreen, you just have to tap and hold on the word you want to look up which seems much easier and quicker.
But what about the second problem? Can anyone tell me if the Kindle Paperwhite shows the pronunciation (when available) in the "short definition"?
At first I thought it could just depend on the dictionary, but I tried 4 or 5 different dictionaries and none of them showed the pronunciation.
Any ideas anyone? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
