When I was younger, there was a time when my parents had me learn and memorize a new word from the dictionary every single day. When they got home from work, I would need to prove that I learned a new word by telling them a sentence using the new word that I have learned. I believe this was sometime during my primary schooling (elementary) days. This training did not last forever of course but I did learn a lot from it.
English is not my first language but my second. Thus there are still a lot of words that I am unfamiliar with and that would require me to look for its meaning. Since the advent of the internet, a lot of petty everyday tasks has been automated and that includes looking for the meaning of a word in the dictionary. So how do I do it?
Type this command in the Google input box:
Just replace [word] with the actual word you are interested in.
Google will do the job for us. Google will look for the meaning of the word we have put into the input box from the various online dictionaries available and will present it to us in a neat formatted page. Thank you Google.
I am taking this a step further by creating a page in my blog which I have entitled “Dictionary“. Some of you might think that this is useless because I am reinventing the wheel. But that is not my purpose. I created this new page so that I can track my progress. A year from now, I can count how many new words I learned within that time span.
So there you have it, that is the reason why I have a new page and I would like to say that out loud so that I have a new blog post ready for the Google spiders to devour. 🙂
