    thumb through figuratively

    Could I say that I'm thumbing through an online dictionary as if I were randomly looking words up in a real dictionary?

    It doesn't work for me.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
