Dictionaries: One Look

enflagOut of habit rather than preference, I always look up either the Macmillan dictionary or the Free Dictionary, which are both rather good as we know. But there are times we can get no satisfaction in one dictionary only, there are times we want something more, there are times we need to compare & contrast. That’s when the OneLook website comes in very handy:  it makes possible for you to look up a bunch of dictionaries at once! I’ve seen it on the Tecla Sap blog last week and it seems to be very interesting. Have you tried it? Whether you are a student, a teacher or merely an enthusiast of words, I believe you’ll make good use of this tool. Enjoy it! 


brflagPor questão de puro hábito, ao invés de preferência, eu sempre uso o dicionário Macmillan ou o Free Dictionary, que são ambos bons, como já sabemos. Mas há momentos em que um dicionário só não nos satisfaz, há momentos em que queremos algo mais e há momentos em que precisamos comparar e contrastar. É nessas horas que o OneLook mostra a que veio – com ele, você consegue pesquisar um determinado termo em uma porção de dicionários ao mesmo tempo! Li sobre ele no blog Tecla Sap semana passada, brinquei um pouco e me pareceu bem interessante. Vocês já conhecem? Seja você um estudante, professor ou mero entusiasta linguístico, creio que será útil, aproveitem!
