From the Writers' Toolbox

Whether we hear an unfamiliar word on TV, read one in the newspaper, or encounter one in a conversation, all of us have need of a dictionary from time to time.

A website called THE FREE DICTIONARY describes itself as “The world's most comprehensive dictionary: English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Chinese, Portuguese, Dutch, Norwegian, Greek, Arabic, Polish, Turkish, Russian, Medical, Legal, and Financial Dictionaries, Thesaurus, Acronyms and Abbreviations, Idioms, Encyclopedia, a Literature Reference Library, and a Search Engine all in one!” Now that’s an enticing description!

This is THE place to increase your vocabulary and learn every nuance of meaning for just about any word you can think of. Click on the link to The Free Dictionary and you will also find a word of the day, quote of the day and an article of the day! For your educational entertainment they offer hangman, a matching game, and a spelling bee. Plus, much, much more! Check it out!
