  1. Could come in handy. My daughter was using Google to check her spelling words. She got a few wrong. But i searched for it on Google and it found the words so they must be right. Nope I said, people mispell too and Google pics up those results too.

    The dictionary would have brought her better answers.

  2. No way am I throwing out my dictionary. Just like wiki, it is based on what folks deposit. Whereas, you are right Google just picks up the results.But this is a quick way to get an idea of a definition while online. Thanks, Heidi

  3. Google can do amazing things! I can get pretty lazy when it comes to dragging out the dictionary, and thumbing through it to find a definition or check spelling. So the idea of just typing in a word and getting instantaneous results is perfect for me!
