On the one hand, it's Merriam-Webster, the big name in dictionaries. On the other hand, the online version of the dictionary is so packed with ads--many of which feature audio/video that starts automatically--that it can be a chore to get to the definition you're looking for. Add to this the following additional hurdles: (1) after typing in a search word, you have to click through an ADDITIONAL page of advertising to get to the definition; (2) getting definitions to some less-common words requires membership to some higher (presumably paid) level of membership. Bear in mind, I am a professional editor and I have (presumably) a greater interest in and need for a service like M-W Online, and the site taxes my patience.

The online version of this classic dictionary that has stood the test of time. I have personally used the Merriam-Webster dictionary software for my own computer and found it so useful that I expected no less than what the online version is all about. The site features are extremely excellent and browsing is very navigation friendly. A dictionary resource like this always deserves a full five star rating because after all what harm can there be in a dictionary?

Need some definitions - Merriam Webster yes like the dictionary has an online free of charge dictionary thesaurus medical dictionary and Spanish to English translator, but for the ultimate knowledge seeker become a unabridged member for $30 for one year and get so much info your brain will most likely explode... ok so maybe not but really though. but if you like etymology you be absolutely obsessed with this site, it has some pretty thorough details and sources. knowledge is power... rule the world... with Merriam Websters online information source
