    Best Online Dictionary: Which One To Use?

    Sorry to be creating a thread about this, but I thought the people in the WritingForums community would be the best place to ask this question!

    I just want an online dictionary that gives 100% accurate and 100% valid information.

    What can people recommend?

    Thank you!

    Wordweb. You might like it. Highlight a word and it offers a definition. It can be used in any Microsoft application and google application. If you want the features, of the dictionary, that is more dictionaries, it has oxford, collins, and more I can't quite recall. But it can cost depending. Bare bones it does the job, with upgrades up to 99 dollars, you should get every major dictionary minus a few. It is in the Microsoft store and others so it is pretty legitimate and safe. I downloaded a copy. Unfortunately, some features are not included from the basic installation such as speech, a thesaurus might not be installed. You have to pay extra. I use anti-virus software and it is a safe download. (I reread, reading is important to understand what you said.)

    I wish it had a reverse dictionary.

    Online dictionaries may be more complete, and reverse dictionaries are not included but thought I'd mention it. I don't know how big it is but those are the features. Which might be worth buying depending on what one places importance in a dictionary.

    I like the above thesaurus.

    I think all dictionaries are pretty much the same.

    The program I mentioned is cheaper that owning the cd version of the oxford dictionary. So depending on what kind of buyer or user you are maybe there is something appealing about it.

    I would follow as in believe in the words of good moral leaders. Rather than the beliefs of oneself.

    Yeah, I think you got hit the nail on the head there.

    As long as it's a valid dictionary it should give you accurate and complete information. Think Oxford, Collins etc.
    Carpe Diem.
