is for a reputable publisher to make its work available free of charge. This is not a rational business model.
Sometimes it's better to pay for the expertise that stands behind a good dictionary. All the good ones have CD-ROM versions, so you have the convenience of an online version with the accuracy and authority of a professional version.
Compared with the prices of specialist dictionaries, general-purpose monolingual (and bilingual) dictionaries are not expensive.
I did not say I want only free dictionaries. I am ready to pay for it provided it can be downloaded and not sent by post since the Armenian post system is way too unreliable.
