Merriam-Webster's Third New International Dictionary Updated - 10 Copies to be Won!



I'm always struggling to find words on Google. An actual app that is on my phone would be so much more convenient.

Need all the dictionary help I can get these days - they say the older you get, the more your forget - man, they had that right!

Just got my first BB after a decade full of Palm devices. A dictionary would make a great addition to my new curve 8530!

I am a stickler for spelling, punctuation and syntax. I visit the Webster site several times a day with my laptop....I really need this for my BB....thanks....

i would love one of these!!! i have to do a lot of word documents on my BB so something like this would b rly useful.

I so baaadlly need a dictionary for my bb as im doing an advanced english course this year & it would really help me soooo mucchh !!

I may be relatively good at spelling, but when it comes to defining a lot of words, I'm generally lost! If you feel like giving me a copy of the absolutely most important application a blackberry can possess, then I'd be happier than ever!

Thanks for your consideration.

i could put this app tp work as I'm approaching my final year of college heading for an MBA...lots of WORDS to read still..

I would love to use this app to expand my vocabulary. Reading the dictionary like Ben Stiller in Dodgeball. Lovely.

This would be an amazing product to have on my phone - I use my built in on my MAC all the time! But winning this has worst odds than the lotto - :)

This complete dictionary would be a fantastic addition to any smartphone. It is one of the apps that one uses almost daily, and in fact improves the vocabulary and knowledge. It would be great to score one for free! (I am a cheapskate)

I can't express how greatly appreciative I would be to win this app. I am continually using a dictionary for proper words. I had to check the dictionary for continually or continuously to make sure I was using the correct word. :)
Good luck to all.

whell, sumtimes i kant spell really good, sew i thinked yesturday that i seen this and wood like two get it!
kan i be a whinner sew my spellin kan get gooder?

I'd love to win this app. It would be very useful for me to look up words when I am sending e-mails or editing Word documents on my BlackBerry.

Would really appreciate this since most of my courses in college require me to read many books as well as novels and this will come in handy to look for words since I do not always have a computer or dictionnary at my disposal especially wheb reading on the bus.Thabks for the contest by the way.

Wow, this would be so much better than carrying my dictionary around school. Plus I would always have it. I need this.

This is a great app and would be a great addittion to bb storm 2...Hopefully I get lucky! keep up the great contests CB!

I think this will be great while you are on the go! I know my sister will then take my phone and use it for her homework.

I would like to win one or both of these. I am constantly looking up words that I don't know. Thanks for the contest.

I hate always having to open up the web browser and go to the website to get my definitions. It sure would help me look smarter haha

That piece of software would be tremendously useful on the go - instead of pushing books around ;-)

I would LOVE an unabridged version for my crackberry!!!!
I always need to look up words for work and when I'm on the go. What better way than to have it on my phone???

Dear Crackberry , Hope you will choose me to win this very useful dictionary. Crackberry and Blackberry ROCKS!

I would really like this app, as I'm one of those weird people who likes looking up new words for fun. My life fails... :p

I would just be happy just to win anything. I tend to look up words a lot and would love to have this. Good luck to all!

I'm always using the app on my phone! I would love to have an unabridged dictionary at my fingertips. It would make it easier for me because I wouldn't have to look in my dad's like 10lb unabridged dictionary anymore!!
