    What do you think why people needed dictionaries? what is the usefullness of dictionaries and the usefullness of them apart from their help to find unknown words?

    Hey newbie :D

    Perhaps one reason that dictionaries are useful is that they help a language define itself.

    Anyone else? Interesting question...
