Last week, I looked up a word that I saw in an article from Time. Since the dictionary didn’t have the word, I looked it up on Google. The Merriam-Webster.com website is a great place to look up words you don’t know. It’s much easier to search it up on Merriam-Webster.com than in a giant and heavy dictionary.
The website offers a link to hear the word being said, so that you don’t have any pronunciation problems, as well as various variations of the pronunciation. It also offers a double click definition feature that I love. In a normal dictionary, if you don’t know the definition in a definition of a word, finding the meaning of a word can take forever, searching through word after word with no use.
However, with this feature, you can double click a word you don’t know, and a small pop up shows you the definition, which is extremely helpful.
Overall, I believe that this website is great in helping you to find out words that you don’t know the meaning of, and it’s a great substitute for a dictionary. Best of all, you can access it from anywhere with internet access!
