The Dictionary

The dictionary

Look it up in a dictionary”, I said IMAG9931

A what?

Dictionary, it’s a book that has every word in it

Like the internet?

Yeah but just words and their definitions

Like Google?

No Ads

Paper?

And Words

Like what do you mean?

A dictionary is a book that lists all the words in a language and their meanings, usually in alphabetical order. It can give the equivalent word in another language as well as their usage and examples. A dictionary can also give you the pronunciation, origin and grammatical usage whether it is a noun, verb, particle, conjunction, preposition, adjective or adverb.

What’s a verb?

It’s a doing word describing an action but I suggest you look it up……….. in a dictionary.

I don’t have a dictionary but I’ve got a smart phone with Google

Here, use my pocket dictionary. IMAG9929

You must have big pockets.

Nah just normal sized ones.

Well that dictionary won’t fit into anyone’s pockets that I know but my smartphone does. Why is it called that?

I don’t know. Let’s look it up in the dictionary. ………. I can’t seem to find it.

“OK Google why is a pocket dictionary called a pocket dictionary when it doesn’t fit in a pocket?”

Well?……

Nothing. It seems even Google can’t answer everything.

Look! Here! In my Pocket Oxford Dictionary under pocket it says pocketbook a small case for papers

“OK Dictionary guy…. define Google”

I can do that without a dictionary and this one was written before the internet existed so no Google.
