Dictionaries?





KHO
l was looking for a good dictionary software for my laptop, l figure it would be nice to have it wherever l have my lappy Neutral. So l was just kinda wondering what you guys (and girls) thought about a dicrtionary program, l am asking for favorites here. lf you have any installed, say so, and if you like it or not, please say why aswell.

l used to have Britannica, but it was an older version, and kinda laggy (really laggy actually Neutral).

I use dictionary.com and urbandictionary.com.

Love Urban Dictionary! Wikipedia has some sort of dictionary, too, don't they?

Oxford Dictionaries are the best, but their OED Online costs $295 per year or $29.95 per month, which I think is bull.

Ya isnt it called "Wictionary"? Never used it though. Mostly use dictionary.com

You mentioned you wanted it wherever your laptop was online or not.

I have to say Word Web is a good small program. It sits in your taskbar and you can simply click on it and look up a word. Obviously when you have an internet connection available its best to use that.

I use OneLook because it actually searches OTHER online dictionaries.

Moreover, their reverse dictionary is a must.

I'd also like to add that if you are in need of a translator program, Office XP has a decent one (if you make sure to install the FULL install...you have to do an "expert install" and click the languages you want); helped with some foreign language essays Wink [/url]

Word web is the best and small program that can fulfil your need.

You just have to put Internet explorer at the bag and use Mozilla Firefox.

In the right high corner of this one, u will find a little search tools u can modify !

So u can easily loonking for something in a dictionary or even in an enciclopedy !

On the web, I prefer http://www.thefreedictionary.com for general, English lookups, and http://www.wordreference.com for Spanish (they also have French, Italian, and Portuguese).

I use good 'ole fashion dictionary.com
It gets the job done.
or if you don't mind paying, wylie-merrick is also fairly good.

if I'm online, dictionary.com and urbandictionary.com works well for me. When I'm offline, I use the electronic edition of the american heritage dictionary. I got the cd free when I bought the paper edition, so I'm not sure how much it would be alone.

The OED is IMO the best dictionary, but it's also one of the most expensive. Good thing my school has an account which I can use. Very Happy

Online I use m-w.com (Merriam-Webster). I also have a CD version of Webster's Unabridged, provided with the hard copy.

I use MSWord spell checker and thesaurus.

Not really a dictionary, but it is free, fast and effective.

Ok, not free unless you already have MSWord. But you can just.. well, you know.. find that.

I deliberately avoid m-w.com since most of the words I try to find with it require a paid subscription to their unabridged dictionary and most of the things that might be found in their free edition are things for which I do not need to search.

I just use Dictionary.com. Very cool site. In fact, the word of the day not too long ago was "cum". How great is that....
