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.

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.

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

The History of English Podcast

by Simon Wheeler

As an Englishman I find the content not just incredibly interesting but also very fulfilling as I learn the historical origins of the words, grammar and syntax that I use - almost without thinking - every day. It's given me a real insight into my own culture and the way that I communicate with ot...

The History of English Podcast

Love the History of English podcast and its website. The maps are great and the audio samples, like the Gregorian chants or "Sumer Is Icumen In" add so much to an already terrific podcast.

I also bought from the website the Beowulf audiobook, which was terrific, and my husband boug...

The History of Byzantium

Very much enjoy The History of Byzantium podcast and website. I like the maps on the site and the ability to buy special episodes from the site.

I wish there was an easier way to get to specific episodes, or at least specific maps. Still, the site is so much better than many simil...

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.
