what word length will this solver accommodate and will it give two-word answers?

1 Answer

Hello there,

After sending your question to the manufacturer they have tried to explain:
"The DMQ-221 contains the data from the Collins Express dictionary and Franklin Thesaurus and will only find the words from these publications irrespective of their word length. So for example a 4 letter word that is not in the dictionary will not be found however it will find much longer words that are. It is therefore important when customers chooses which electronic dictionary to buy they consider which publication it is based on.
Similarly if the printed version of the dictionary defines different senses of a word this will be in the product for example the word ‘House’ has 6 senses defined in the DMQ-221
Sorry this is not such a straight forward explanation but I hope I have managed to make it understandable."

I hope this helps at least a little.
Thank you for using Argos Q&A
