In this day and age of easy internet searches with results at your fingertips, I must admit that I have not used a physical dictionary in many years. As a lover of books, of course I own a large Webster’s American Family Dictionary. I also own a pocket sized Webster’s American Dictionary (literally, it fits in my palm). But – like I did with my Thesaurus – I pulled my dictionaries off the shelf today just to relearn how to use them and find some of my “New Words” definitions the old-fashioned way. It’s nice, getting reacquainted with old friends.
