What's the best way to find out what a new word means? Check the dictionary, of course. At the "Speech Dudes" blog, Russell Cross and Chip Clarke round up their top seven online dictionaries, and say why they're so useful for speech-language treatment providers.
"Many of the people who follow the Dudes and read this blog are professionals involved in the teaching of English at some level or another. And whether that's working with language-impaired 3-year-olds, adults learning English as a second language, teenagers with literacy challenges, or folks using augmentative and alternative communication technology, having a grasp of word functions and meanings is critical. So if you're looking for information about a word, where do you turn to? The answer is, 'the dictionary!'"
