Hello 'all, your favorite neighborhood orange-obsessed trekkie here. Today, I've decided to compile a list of websites that I feel that everyone should include in their internet toolboxes. Whether it be to check what words mean or if you're itching to get a new name for your MMO character, these links should help.
First off, this is the main dictionary website I use. If you have a better one, feel free to ignore this, but here it is for those of you who need one. http://dictionary.reference.com/
To be honest, so far as spelling and grammar are concerned, with increasing use of lazy text-speak, and worthless acronyms such as 'lol', effective use/application of the English language does appear to be on the decline.
Whilst I understand that age, and education, need to be taken into consideration it does seem that many are a little too insouciant about the lack of perspicuity in what they write.
