Best dictionaries for koreader

I need link for best English to English dictionary that works with koreader.

Before I searched for one and as time goes, I see that it can't recognize many words. It is based on Websters from 1913, if I'm not mistaken.

Anyway, what do you use and that is pretty comprehensive?

I find this "Collaborative International Dictionary of English" quite useful.

And there is a huge repository of dictionaries to be found here.

The 1913 dictionaries are often useful when reading works that use medieval terms, and somewhat for earlier terms. This comes in handy if you like epic fantasy.

Luck;

Why not Oxford Advanced Learner 8th? Some simple Google search combining the "name" and "stardict" then you can find in elsewhere from Russia.

The Oxford English Dictionary 2nd Ed. (in two parts - make sure to get both and put both on) I find most excellent. Now it's not concise, but give lots of etymological information and quotations. But when I actually want to look up a word, I do myself often want that info.

I found it here: http://download.huzheng.org/bigdict/

I guess you mean this two giant files (99 and 121MB)?

And I have unzipped dict files previously, do I need to unzip these files also?

Yes, unzip them, and place the (two) resulting folders in the appropriate place.

They may or may not be as useful to you as they are to me. When I run across a word I want to look up, I usually do myself want etymological information and quotations across a time period.
