Harper Collins English, US English, German, and French. Their is also a picture dictionary that can be edited, an invaluable tool for teachers and parents.
To demonstrate the dictionary, we have used two homophones – flower and flour. Sounding the same, but having a different meaning and a different spelling, homophones can pose difficulty for many dyslexic and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) learners.
