I use this site to look up words I don't know and use them improperly in front of my coworkers who think I'm a sociopath.

Define: euthanasia.

Can you use it in a sentence?

I wouldn't.

Why doesn't anybody sit next to me at lunch?

I use this site mostly for its thesaurus, which, I have to say, is kind of terrible. There are words out there that I know exist that are more exciting and colorful than the hyperbolic tripe that comes to mind, but are they on Dictionary.com? Do they dance from this website like sparkling beacons of literary comfort, encouragement and inspiration?

Usually not. Sigh...

As a writer, I'm often looking to enhance my copy with interesting words or find a different way to state my point.

This dictionary, along with the thesaurus feature are invaluable for such purposes. I even have the app on my iPhone, which offers a 'word of the day' notification that's great for expanding your vocabulary.

The site also features fun facts, quizzes and trending words - all great fun for literary junkies. I completely recommend it to anyone with an interest in the English language.

Dictionary.com has a quiz to test my vocabulary aka you want to judge how smart I am? Are you trolling me? Facebook does quizzes. You're better than that. Come on!

But thank you for teaching me new words though. My current favorite is: azoospermia. I use it all the time.

One of the better dictionary services on the internet. However, I wish it was available offline too.

Attempted to visit the website but unfortunately was not able to navigate to it with the error message stating that the "DNS address could not be found."

Something to look at and fix immediately.

One of the most well-known public broadcasting and news service companies in the world, the BBC has an understandably slightly cluttered site.

However, the top bar navigation works well and the news articles are front and center right on the home page.
