When a teacher asks you to define a word, there are a few things on your mind. 

How would you define a word? Thanks God that he invented both the book and the internet.

1.    Use the dictionary to look for the meaning of the world. If not the dictionary, you open your Almanac, Thesaurus or Encyclopaedia.




2.    “Google” the word. You will know millions of things about the word. For sure, the top result is that of Wikipedia. With the help of other search engines just like Yahoo and Bing, you are able to know more about the definition of a word (unlike when using a book).




3.    Use context clues to know the definition of a word. However, using context clues does not ensure you that you have the right definition of the word.
