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.

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...

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.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.
