New Keyboard Dictionaries - Default English Dictionary ?

Does anybody know which dictionaries are meant in the following feature description for iOS 4.2 for ipad?"More than 30 new keyboards and dictionaries, including Arabic, Greek, and Hebrew (iPad only)"Most probably I'm dreaming but I would love to see a Dutch-English dictionary in ibooks working just like the default English dictionary. How cool would it be if Apple allowed 3rd party dictionary implementation into ibooks?

Change IPad's Built Dictionary To British English?
The iPad's built in dictionary (for defining words) is in American English (using words such as favorite instead of the correct favourite spelling), even though my language setting is set to British English.

How To Change Default Dictionary For Kindle?
I have been googling like mad to find out how to change the default dictionary on my kindle for ipad app from English to French. I actually bought the Kindle French dictionary, but now find it entirely useless as I cannot use it in text reading mode!

Is there any way that I can change the default dictionary in the Kindle for iPad to the French dictionary? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Keyboard Is Stuck On English (US) On IPad 3G
My iPad keyboard won't change to British English, so the dictionary is always American. The keyboard can be any other language, it's just when I select English it always stays on English (US).

Add Words To Keyboard Dictionary Hack?
After reading Matthew's thread about the spacebar on the keyboard bugging him, it had dawned on me that there was no way to add custom words to the iPad's dictionary or set certain words to be replaced with other words, for example the word "ipad" will usually be auto corrected by the keyboard dictionary and changed to "iPad", however, if you type "ipads", the word is not auto corrected and the letter "p" in the word does not get capitalized nor is an apostrophe added into the word.

So, is there a hack that allows you to add custom words to the auto-correction dictionary or is there a hack that allows you to add certain words to be replaced by other words?

If such a hack does not exist, this hack could be made and put into Cydia by a dev and I would gladly pay for it (I hope a dev is reading this *wink*).

Does 's Ebook Include A Dictionary - Reader Dictionary Feature
I want to know if the book reader feature in iPad has a dictionary. In other words, can I underline a word in a book and have it bring up its definition. If yes, can you provide a link to an official description that describes this feature? Also, if yes, is it included or an app?I've been doing a lot of browsing and have only found one iffy claim that it has a dict. The absence of touting this feature makes me wonder.Ideally I'd like to hear from someone that has used both a Kindle and the iPad's reader dictionary feature.

Using Default Auto Correction Of IPads Keyboard
How do you find the auto correction on your iPad? Do you like the way it works? Would you like to see any improvements? I personally have been using it a lot and I now hate it. I hate it because it automatically corrects me without first asking me if I want the proposed changes. I would very much prefer to have an auto correction system that suggests one to three words. If the user doesn't specifically choose one of the suggested words, the system shouldn't change anything. Auto correction on the iPhone works exactly as bad as on the iPad, but I still have it enabled on my phone because of the smaller keyboard.

Unable To See Default Account-default Account In The Notes App Settings?
I noticed that after upgrading to iOS 4.2 on my iPad, there is not way to choose a default account in the notes app settings.For example, on my iPhone 4 if I go to Settings>Notes it has the 3 fonts listed and a Default Account choice.

This is not the case on my iPad. If I create a note on my iPad it seems to be created on the iPad and does not sync with MobileMe.Is this happening to anybody else?

I bought my ipad in the USA before the English one was released. I would like to put in an English address but it won't let me until I clear the account which has 4 cents on it! How do I clear the account (bought in vouchers origionally) and when I change my address to an English account will I lose the applications I bought in America? Hope that makes sense!!

Finding English Books Only?
I am a new Ipad owner and am really enjoying what I have so far. (I am not so brave as to try an update to OS4 yet).

My question here though, is when I search ibook store how can I get it to display only books written in English?

Also, when I browse on my PC windows 7, I can not seem to get a "categories" option to narrow down what I am looking for (primarily history, biographies and classics). Is there a way of doing that. On my ipad, it does allow a "categories" option where I can select what category I want, but the non-english books are still listed.

Won't Find EBooks In English
For reasons I do not wish to discuss, I am forced to use the German iTunes store (bah).

To my surprise, they don't offer any JRR Tolkien stuff there - not even in German. I mean, how ridiculous is that ? I can buy the (english) hardcopy of LOTR in any well sorted book store but not on iTunes?

Anyways, without further ranting, has anyone figured out a legal way of getting the eBook version of LOTR on their iPads ? In Germany, mind you !

What eReader do I need and where would I buy from?

Dictionary Available In Certain Applications?
I've noticed when typing an email when a word is underlined in red you can tap on it and then a "replace" button appears that offers the
correct spelling. However when reading email only the option to copy appears. Yet in Pages and iBooks you can tap a word and get the
dictionary. Is Dictonary only available in certain apps at certain times?

How To Add Word In Its Dictionary
My IPad 2 keeps autocorrecting the spelling of my name incorrectly and a few times I have missed it and created all sorts of confusion (what it is being changed to is nowhere near my real name). Does any know how I can either add my correct name spelling to the dictionary so I doesn't try to auto correct, or to address this another way as it's really frustrating.

If I were to purchase a 3G enabled iPad here in the UK, could I take it to France, purchase a sim card there and e.g. a months subscription (forfait), take out the UK card and replace it with the French card, and start to use the iPad in the normal way. On return to the UK, I would then replace the UK card, and carry on as normal here.

Removing A Word From Dictionary
When I try to type my name in most documents, it is auto corrected to "Mike Ethan" this is not close to my name and it is annoying to have to remove the autocorrection.. I found the instructions for removing a word from the dictionary but the instructions are incorrect as there is no field in the general page of Setting/keyboard corresponding to "modify dictionary".
