How many words do you need anyway?
The bigger the dictionary, the more words it contains that you will never use.
I’ll bet that even the dollar sized dictionary has more words that you don’t use than words that you do.

The smaller the dictionary, the less the words.
The bigger the dictionary, the more words.

It's not you pay for what you get, it's about size. You can't put 10,000 words in a 50 page pocket dictionary. Size matters!

I always pay for what I get. I don't think stealing is good for the economy. Unless someone else wants to pay it for me.
