The Basics and More: Dictionary

Basics of How to Use:

The Dictionary application given to you by Apple is an everyday application that is very simple, but I am going to show you how to get the most out of this everyday application. Like any Dictionary you just type in the word and a definition appears, but with this not only a definition, and thesaurus appear, but also information from Wikipedia about the subject you searched. For people who have trouble seeing the font on the computer you can easily enlarger or shrink the font by clicking the small or large A on the Top Menu Bar.

Things to Note

Some important things to note are that the dictionary and thesaurus will work without Internet, but the Wikipedia section of the dictionary will not. Another thing that is great about Dictionary is that when you read a definition and there is a word that you don’t know, you can select that word and it brings up that definition.


It is obvious that this application is very useful for everyday life whether it is understanding complicated words or expanding your vocab.
