this will happen if you are running of word meanings, sometimes we encounter difficulties in understanding deep meaning words? would you love to ask you dictionary if you don't understand the words?

I do that a lot of times especially if I want to make sure that I understand the meaning of the words correctly. I also consult the dictionary on the correct pronunciation of the words.

Only when a new word comes across me !!!. Not always. The word 'dictionary' may have originated from 'diction' (means only way of pronouncing). DICTIONARY has the maximum meanings and pronouncings.

I consult a dictionary when there's a word at the tip of my tongue that I can't figure out. But most of the time I don't consult a dictionary. Even when I'm reading. I know. I know. I should keep a dictionary beside me when I'm reading books so that it's easier to check for words that I haven't encountered before. I guess that's the reason why I don't have a rich vocabulary even if I'm a wide reader. But I do know what the words mean. I just can't define it word for word. And I surely can use them in a sentence.

yeah I do consult dictionary all the time, in correct grammar and spelling. Sometimes I'm running out of english words to say and I have to translate our own words (filipino) into english.
