    Re: (The) Cambridge Dictionary. (A/The) Cambridge Dictionary('s) entry

    there is only one Cambridge Dictionary, of which there are thousands of copies. The text itself is unique.
    Even if "Cambridge Dictionary" functions as a physical object? I mean I found the bookmark in a book, not in the text if it matters at all.
    BTW, I missed 'm' in "Cambridge"

    Sorry, I misread your last question. I've just realised that you mentioned a bookmark, not a word.

    In that case, your sentence is fine, although it is a very unlikely thing to say, as shown by your rather forced context. But yes, your thinking is correct.

    (Sorry for any confusion caused on my part.)

    That's the point! Since I don't have a native-like sense of English, I have to explore all possibilities. Thank you for your help!
