If you wish to discuss the origins of an English word or phrase, want some help writing a tricky letter, or just wish to share some interesting aspect of the English language with like-minded people.
If all you wish to know is a word meaning (with an outline of origin), please consult Merriam-Webster ( www.m-w.com/ ) or the Compact Oxford English Dictionary ( www.askoxford.com/dictionaries/compact_oed/ ). 500 online dictionaries are covered by onelook.com/index.html
Other resources (thesaurus, anagrams etc) are available here. www.wordwizard.com/indexresources.htm
