additional entries for the headword on screen. Press ESC
to view the Word List.
The Word List appears:
ƒ When the scanned word corresponds to more than
one dictionary entry. For example, if you scan the

enables you to choose between the dictionary
entries “dress” and “dressing”.
ƒ When the scanned word is a homonym, a word that
is the same as another in spelling but different in
meaning.
ƒ After scanning an idiom or phrasal verb, the
Quicktionary will automatically recognize the
entire phrase from the first word highlighted, and will
provide a Word List containing both the whole
idiom and the first highlighted word.
Headword
The selected word or a derivative of the selected word,
may consist of more than one word. The screenshots
here display the headword "special" and the word "ate", a
derivative of the headword "eat".
17
The Quicktionary
Phonetics
The phonetic transcription of the headword. This can be
seen when the dictionary entries are shown in Full
Display. The guide to the phonetic symbols used in the
dictionary, is available from the Guides and Glossaries
menu in Help in the Quicktionary Menu.
Parts of Speech
Categories of words that describe their particular function,
e.g. nouns, verbs, adjectives. Some dictionary entries
contain several parts of speech, such as "land" which is
both a noun (n.) and a verb (v.).
Idioms
Expressions or phrases usually composed of a sequence
of words. They can be identified:
ƒ Automatically within a sentence
ƒ By scrolling through the translation of the first word
of the sequence.
If you scan text containing an idiom, the Quicktionary
application will automatically display the translation of the
idiom when the first word is highlighted, i.e. the idiom
"From A to Z" displayed from the headword "From".
18
The Quicktionary
Split Verbs
If you scan a single word which is part of a split verb:
1. The translation will appear along with the Word
List icon. In the Word List, the SPLIT VERB
option appears allowing you to scan the first part of
the split verb.
2. The message “Scan 1st part” will appear allowing
you to scan the first part of the split verb in order to
view the translation of the entire verb.
If you scan a line of text containing a split verb (e.g., in
the German to English dictionary), the Quicktionary
automatically recognizes the verb and combines the
parts.
The dictionary entry for the verb is displayed as soon as
you highlight the first part of the verb that appears in the
sentence. For example, if you scan in the sentence "ihr
stellt etwas auf", the dictionary entry for "aufstellen"
appears as soon as you highlight "stellt".
Compound Words
If you scan a word that is not a dictionary entry, but is a
compound word consisting of existing dictionary entries
(e.g., in the German to English dictionary), the
Quicktionary separates the compound word into its
respective entries.
The translation of the primary word in the compound
word appears first, with the Word List sign next to it.
19
The Quicktionary
To display the dictionary entry for another part of the
compound word:
Press ENT to go to the Dictionary Screen (if you
scanned more than one word).
2. Press ESC to display the word list.
3. Scroll to the word you want to translate and press
ENT.
For example: If you scan the word ‘Sprachgemeinschaft’,
the entry for ‘gemeinschaft’ appears. Go to the word list
and select ‘Sprache’ to view its translation.

out all the options for pronouncing the word.
Using Professional Dictionaries
Some Pens contain dictionaries known as professional
dictionaries. These dictionaries contain multiple subdictionaries that are incorporated into a single dictionary,
such as the HMC Dictionaries. These dictionaries are
represented by a single heading in the Select
Dictionary option in the Dictionary submenu accessed
from the Quicktionary Menu.
When you select the dictionary and exit to the
Dictionary submenu you will see two additional
submenu options:
1. Dictionary Display Order

Word List and see the additional entries available from
each sub-dictionary within the professional dictionary.
The icon representing the sub-dictionary is displayed on
the right of the screen.
2. Select Cross-Ref. Dict.

Batteries
Your Pen comes with 2 AAA Alkaline batteries. If the
batteries are low, the "Replace Batteries" message
appears on the Pen. When the batteries are about to run
out, the Pen shuts down automatically.
Many issues may occur on the Pen due to low batteries.
If you encounter strange behavior, check the battery level
in the Information menu and replace batteries if
relevant.
