Every time I am updating my blogs, I never forget to have my dictionary with me for sometimes I am not familiar with the words I am using, I automatically check of the meaning. I sometimes use word/words that I read before and thought of using it to give some variety to my article. This is also to make sure I am using the word/s correctly. Yes, I promised to use only simple English words, however, sometimes I feel like using other terms to make it sound nice. It is also good to use other words for it widens my vocabulary. I used to be a bookworm, but when this new technology surfaces, I seldom open or read books. My bad. 🙁
When I saw an application of Merriam-Webster Dictionary, I downloaded it without second thought. It really helps me a lot especially when I am out and feel like writing while waiting for someone, I can search for the meaning of the word/s using my phone or tablet. I am really glad that this app is invented. My niece saw me searching for the meaning of the word she asked me once and thought of downloading it to her phone. Instead of bringing the heavy two volume dictionary that we have, it is best to have it on her phone. Not heavy and she can search the meaning of the word easily and fast. Technology these days really helps in our daily life. Sad that we are dependent with the technology but happy for it makes our work easy and fast. Still thankful of this development but let us not forget the old ways.
