Today, I’m giving a review of the online dictionary and thesaurus website called www.dictionaryofwords.com.
When I first arrived at the homepage of this site, I decided to click around and get a feel for the site. I entered some random words in the search bar, and the program returned the pronounciation and definitions of the words from three different sources including:
1. The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48
2. WordNet (r) 2.0
3. Moby Thesaurus II by Grady Ward, 1.0
Included in the query results were thesaurus matter as well.
Displayed after the definitions was a list of web search results for the defined word.
I then entered another word. This time, the sources that defined the word were not the same as the previous search. I like how it pulls definitions from different sources.
Another feature with this site is it’s abiltity do display everything in Spanish or English.
I did searches under all these tabs, and basically your search results begin with the definition of the word entered, followed by web content including that key word related to the specified tab selected.
This website took a little bit of getting used to. However, I like it. I’m not sure if it will replace my current methods of checking definitions of words, but this is a good resource.
