    pull up one's dictionary

    Dear teachers,

    is there such an expression 'to pull up one's dictionary'? I heard a person say that, but when I looked it up, I didn't find any meaning of 'pull up' that could go with the word 'dictionary'. Could you please clarify that?

    Thank you.

    Re: pull up one's dictionary

    I'm guessing it means 'log on to your online dictionary.'
