If you haven’t already downloaded the Dictionary.com app, it’s worth checking out! The app offers a comprehensive dictionary and thesaurus with pronunciations that can be played out loud.
The folks at Dictionary.com also share regular blog posts and slide shows on interesting words, phrases, and more. A few of my current favorites include:
- What do the M’s in M&Ms stand for?
- What is the precise difference between ghouls, goblins, and ghosts?
- Fall used to have a different name and why is autumn a mystery?
- Be Very Afraid: 8 Monsters of Literature & Folklore (FYI: We have stories for all of these scary characters in our libraries. Search the online catalog to find one today.)
