OneLook® Dictionary Search a search engine for words and phrases: Have a word for which you’d like a definition or translation- it’ll take you to the web-based dictionaries that define or translate it. If you don’t know the right word to use, it’ll help you find it. “No word is too obscure”: More than 5 million words in more than 1000 online dictionaries are indexed by the OneLook search engine.

Define words: Type a word into the search box on the front page to retrieve a list of dictionary web sites that define that word. Be sure “Find definitions” is selected.
Find words: Type a pattern consisting of letters and the wildcards * and ? to retrieve a list of words matching your pattern. The asterisk (*) matches any number of letters or symbols. The question mark (?) matches exactly one letter or symbol. (Read these sections for more info on wildcards and the Reverse Dictionary.)
Translate words: Type a word into the search box and select “Find translations” to retrieve a list of dictionary web sites that have translations of that word into other languages.
