Hungarian dictionary doesn't lookup words with prefixes
I'd like to use a Hungarian dictionary on my Kindle and just found one. Unfortunately, the lookup for words does work only for entire words.
To make myself clear, let's say I look for the English word 'horses' (pl), my dictionary will redirect me to 'horse' (sg). Same with 'growing', which will redirect me to grow.
My French dictionary works pretty well the same way. If I'm looking for the word 'laissant' (to leave, present participle), I'm redirected to the infinitive 'laisser'.
Now let's say I'm looking for the Hungarian word 'ház' (house), it's fine, the dictionary finds it. But if I'm looking for 'házak' (pl), or 'házban' (locative, in the house), then the dictionary doesn't recognize it and redirects me knowhere, which is a shame, as words are seldom in the citation form.
Now the big question... Can anyone help me? The dictionary is in PRC.
Thanks a lot,

This has to do with how the dictionary was created. Nothing you can do except rewrite the dictionary.
