For those times when a dictionary is nowhere in sight, but your email-enabled cell phone is handy, check out the free dictionary and thesaurus email services from Wordsmith.org. To access, send an email to email@example.com with a command (“define” or “synonym”) followed by your word in the subject line. For example to get a definition for “parsimonious” use “define parsimonious” as the subject. To look up “penurious” in the thesaurus, place “synonym penurious” in your subject line.
