    These dictionary sites are really useful. My favorite is no other than Dictionary.com, I use it whenever I need to find the meaning of some strange words, or when I need to double check the spelling. Good stuff!

  • Nice sharing. i like thefreedictionary.com, a faithful user. And my best love one is wikipedia.org, not a dictionary, but should be a best choice.
