When context clues aren’t enough

We haven’t yet seen one of these in person, but we’re eager to: the Franklin Pagemark Dictionary, an electronic dictionary that does double-duty as a book mark.

From the product description:

An essential reading companion, this Merriam Webster electronic PageMark dictionary is ultra thin and lightweight so you can use it as a bookmark. A quick and easy reference for over 274,000 definitions, it lets you create your own word list for easy reference, and includes phonetic spell correction for over 80,000 words. Fun and convenient, it features a built-in crossword solver, word games, a clock and full-function calculator, plus a Rolodex databank to store names and phone numbers.

Sounds neat. But when they come out with the matching thesaurus, I’ll be among the first to order.
