Did you change the language of Clockwork Orange to zu?

You can use this Java Mobi Metadata Editor to set it this way:

Do you get a no definition found searching for it? Or the dictionary name is not even displayed?

In the former case, try searching vellocet a bit further down the page ...do you get this?

Yes! It worked!

It said no definition found for rassoodocks. It also says the same thing for mestros. I think the problem is when there is a plural case.

Would you be able to fix this?

Also, could I run both the NADSAT dictionary and The New Oxford American Dictionary for Clockwork Orange

Normal: mestros is not defined in the dictionary. I only sampled about 250 words from Anthony Burgess book as a proof of concept. It is far from complete. Let alone the singular/plural, gender, tenses inflections... As for me fixing it, too much work for diminishing fun in return. But hey, the source is up there if anyone cares.

Not automagically. Only one dictionary is invoked based on the language the book is set to. Of course, you can manually open the Oxford to search for a Nadsat term, but not by pointing in the book.
