    Online Dictionary, Encyclopedia and Thesaurus. Free access.
    Encyclopedia - Britannica Online Encyclopedia
    Dictionary and Thesaurus - Merriam-Webster Online
    Wikipedia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You may also see references in some posts to BNC:
    [bnc] British National Corpus

    There's also the Urban Dictionary (street slang):
    Urban Dictionary: Define Your World

    And, of course, for those who irreverently want to poke fun at English words:
    [ The Devil's Dictionary Dot Com ]
    It's somewhat similar to the cynic's dictionary:
    The Cynic's Sanctuary
    Don't use these last 2 references as valid definitions!

    Hope these help

    PS I store them all in a folder on my "links" bar in Internet Explorer for ease of use.


    The following one is from RonB:

    Also try: It's worth your time. And it's not depressing at all.

    Welcome to the forums.

    An excellent site online is: OneLook Dictionary Search

    Do you want a printed dictionary?
