In the mordern society , the computer is very popular, it is a encyclopaedia. During i further study in middle school, high school, university. every english class or do english homework,i must take out the thick dictionary to check new english words and phrase. Its a hard time, now i collect it as treasure souvenir. now i look up word on line high efficiently via web-dictionary. What about you? By the way could you please recommend some good dictionary online?

I do not refer to web dictionaries. That would be uncomfortable. I have got a good pocket dictionary which to me, is more precious than my spouse. I always refer to it whenever I need the meaning of a word.

I used to keep a handy dictionary on my bedside but ever since we had DSL internet at home, I go to Wikipedia and Wiktionary for instant information.
