Demo-version of Polyglossum_NET contain demo-versions of dictionaries, rather than full versions of dictionaries. Demo-version of dictionary is short fragment (3% - 5%) of full version of the dictionary. Closest analog of these demo is a few pages sample of printed dictionary. So, demo-versions of dictionaries ARE NOT for estimation of comprehension of full versions of dictionaries.
