I don't want to be too negative here, but I would suggest only ever using 
kitten as a reference for quickly looking up words. The backend dictionary 
(edic) is a bit rubbish and I've had Japanese people in hysterics with some 
of the words + translations it comes up with. It's probably  better to bite 
the bullet and get a decent paper-based dictionary and a Wordtank or 
something for when you want to look up words on the fly. It's a lot better to 
use a Japanese dictionary than relying on translations.

Searching for 買って here returns only 買う, which is correct. This is kitten 1.2 
from kde 3.5.10. Maybe you should mention which version of kitten you are
