At the moment, the default dictionary in my iBooks app seems to American English although my default iOS language is set to British English. I also have the keyboard language set to English (UK), and although not pertinent to this question, Spanish also. I don't mind so much that the dictionary is American English but the ridiculous pronunciation guide is really getting on my nerves, it uses some sort of stupid accent marks above the vowels instead of the internationally recognised IPA. It is driving me crazy that there is no simple way to simply change the default dictionary language on iOS when it is simple on OS X. When I look something up on my MacBook I not only get the British English defintion but also the pronunciation denoted in IPA, therefore I know Apple can do this. It's not rocket science.


Basically my question is, is there a simple way of changing the default dictionary in iBooks on iOS?
