When I need to find out what a word means I browse it on an e-dictionary. When it comes to foreign languages, when I need to translate a word, I go first to the classic book dictionary, and only if I can't find it there, I try translating it by an e-dictionary.

Hi,chenmeiyi.In my opinion,traditional dictionary is more useful if you want to write a paper but if you only want to find some words we use daily,I think just a e-dictionary is enough,after all,as you said e-dictionary is portable,light and more efficient than tradional dictionary.

You mean is english dictionary?I like the triditional dictionary,when i meet a strange word,i search it by e-dictionary,it's fast i find out the word,but i have less impress and i forget it soon,but when i use the triditional dictionary and i remember it secure,i just like this,other people may mostly like e-dictionary.

Hi Though I have an e-dictionary, I like to use the traditional book dictionary. From my school days I am using the paper dictionary hence I feel it is more reliable. Some times I use the internet to check the meaning, synonyms etc.

I prefer the real paper dictionary, becasue I find the e-dictionary does not have all the words I use on it yet and the paper dictionary offers me more definitions that the internet one does not have yet.

I still like flipping pages while looking for words that I want to know if I am spelling right or searching for its meaning in case I encountered a new word in some way.. Pocket dictionaries don't use batteries would be the only thing that it has advantage of I guess compared with those e-dictionaries available..

Since I spend my days sitting infront of my computer, I prefer my e-dictionaries, if I can find one. It's just too cumbersome to carry a real dicioary aroud. I'd raher just look one up on line.

I don't have an idea of what it goes for over there,if the price is not too bad,i will as well prefer it to the big paper directories.Getting out of fashion!
