Great learning, great fun!!!

The Free Dictionary offers great teaching and learning tools. I like that rarely used words are introduced via "Words of the Day." They are pronounced and used in sentences to teach their proper usage. I love the Quote of the Day, Article of the Day, This Day in History, and all the word games. I especially enjoy the opportunity to play new games daily. I am especially enjoying Hangman. I love it all! I would like to see one improvement though. I want to see other voices pronounce the "Spelling Bee" words. Bill Kurtis is a great speaker, but his voice is not always clear nor is it always precise in its pronunciation of the words. His doesn't have to be the only voice; a woman's would make a nice change.

No corrective service

If a word is typed in and it is wrong, it comes up as not found in the dictionary. I thought that the suggestion box would provide the correct spelling but that was not the case. The end result is that if a person does not know how to spell the word the dictionary becomes useless. There should be a feature that will help a person with the right spelling.

Tons of useful information here

I like the quotes by famous authors a lot since I collect some that I like, along with quotes from other sources that interest me. I enjoy the scholarly articles in this app also. Dictionary by Farlex is a cornucopia for the curious.

A Progressive Walk

It is a dictionary. That means for me, Words. the familiar and the new. Translated into additional knowledge, but also an acquaintance with other personalities, places, history and so on. It is a work of art, and something of importance. I have only begun to explore the varying features and will get to tell you more in the future. Nothing has popped up that creates distaste to date. Than you thus far.

This is a great concept, and I think it works!

There is at least one minor bug--my score accumulated from expert to "vocabularist" and at the same time I lost all record of having learned any words, so I started over from scratch--this I don't mind because I'm enjoy the "review." Also, the "difficult word" list doesn't seem to function properly, if at all. I can't recall the list of missed words, to review them, for example. I wish there was a simple way to copy the current word, so that it could be simply pasted into another application; a dictionary application, for example.

Awesome

This dictionary give a wider example than most others and with the Thesaurus it helps you to get a better understanding and stronger aid to use the word.

Madame du Barry

I usually don't read or research World history that dates back this far. I did find the article quite intriguing though and would recommend reading. It is more than a simple story, much more.

excellent

I paid $3.54 for the dictionary. I did not realize that I did not have to pay for it. I want my money back.

What am I to do with my old O.E.D.?

So far there is nothing to dislike. I absolutely enjoy the historical notes: today's topic is Sacco and Vanzetti...by surprise! What a plus!
