Dictionary...

Recommended Posts

There is this one website that gives you multiple defintions from many different sources online. It was in a thread on the ocean's topic but I forgot what it is called. I believer it starts with a c but I could be wrong. Anybody, know what I'm talking about (it's a website)?

onelook.com is probably what you're looking for. Also helpful is using the "define:" feature on google.

I agree, google is the best way to go. I use Yahoo sometimes as well ^_^ Ask Jeeves can sometimes come up with good things, but I'd stick with Google ^_^

 

may the force be with you in your search ;):Yoda

OneLook remains my favorite, especially since they've added the Oxford English Dictionary to their list. I also like the specialty dictionaries it includes (very helpful for finding contextual definitions), and the fact that you can even find listings from the legendary Webster's 2nd (i.e., back when dictionaries still tried to give instruction as to how words should be used as opposed to merely recording how they are used--not a trivial difference).
