The Daijirin App is the pinnacle of authentic Japanese [national language + encyclopedia] large dictionaries containing the latest 251,000 entries. This is an offline electronic dictionary application for Daijirin 4.0, which is based on the book version of "Daijirin 4th Edition" and has been edited to reflect changes in social conditions, with new words added.
Since the first edition in 1988, the "modern sense of meaning priority method" has been adopted for the explanation of the meaning of words, arranging them according to modern meanings and usage. Words that have different meanings depending on the era are first explained from the modern meaning, and then the whole picture of the word is laid out.
Items and examples corresponding to the new era, young people's words, new ways of saying, katakana and alphabet notation words are fully recorded. Even words that have been published since the old version have spread with the times and added new meanings that have become established. In addition, for a globalized and multicultural society, we have expanded and enhanced the headwords and descriptions of words that are self-explanatory to native speakers but difficult to explain.
Pursuing the role required of a single large-scale Japanese dictionary, we have recorded items in a wide range of fields that are required today, centering on modern words, including archaic words, proper nouns, and technical words. With an increase of 13,000 items from the 3rd edition, the total number of recorded items is 251,000, which is the largest number among similar books.
