  • I appreciated this updated dictionary but got disappointed when I could not find ‘example sentences’ among the definitions, as we usually find in printed dictionaries
    These ‘examples sentences’ help us greatly to learn how to colocate the new word.

  • Hi Priscilla. I’m glad you like the dictionary.
    The example sentences are shown in blue and you can see them by clicking the ‘Show More’ button on the right of the screen. So if you look up ‘disappointed’ with ‘Show Less’ checked, you will see:
    unhappy because something that you hoped for or expected did not happen or because someone or something was not as good as you expected.
    But if you look at the Show More view, you get this:
    disappointed (that):
    She was disappointed that he never replied to her letter.
    disappointed at/by/about: Obviously, I feel very disappointed at not getting the job.
    disappointed in:I’m really disappointed in you, Ruth.
    bitterly disappointed (=extremely disappointed):
    Ireland were bitterly disappointed to end the competition with only two points.
