Dictionary for Windows
This tool provides several definitions and sample sentences that can aid understanding. Click the icon (little book) when you have selected a word to look up in the dictionary. Alternatively, you can click the button before selecting a word, then type the word into the text box. Definitions can be read aloud by clicking the play button. There is also a picture dictionary. It shows images for a word selected. This tool would be great for struggling learners, or for that matter, lower elementary students who may not have the sophisticated language. Click on the picture dictionary icon and select a word. An image of the word will be displayed.
