As a subset of words, and depending on the novel, some names (real or fictional) of persons, places and so on, are sometimes defined or commented upon.
So, with this app in hand, whenever you study or simply read a novel in the app's list, you can quickly search or browse through the database for the meanings of those words which challenge you.
Why Novel Words?
Generally, most popular fiction necessarily uses easily understood language. Literary fiction - that is, fiction which has literary merit and which broadly focuses upon the human condition - tends to use those challenging words which cause readers to pause. And thereby reach for a dictionary....
For example, here are a tiny few of the challenging words in Joyce's Ulysses: omphalos, gossoon, orgulous, quopped, ubicity, ollav, bullgine, leet, coneys, plappering, ingle, oxter, yclept, invercund and mazer.
Hence, with Novel Words Collection at the fingertips, students and other readers will immediately benefit with the quickest method to access a required definition - not only to avoid delays but also to have a more informative and, perhaps, more enjoyable reading experience.
