Where words are defined as pictures, for learning the exact names of objects. Different from a dictionary or from encyclopedia because the images replace the words. A reference tool who lays emphasis on the essential and quick search of information. Its main objective is to help master the language. The enrichment of the words and images make it an essential tool to words identification.

All About Dictionaries is the place to learn about all of the different dictionaries out there, their history, and usage. We’re all familiar with the old favorite standards – the Oxford English Dictionary, Webster’s Dictionary – but do you know how many different dictionaries there are? Do you know how many different types of dictionaries there are? What their history is? Did you know that a famous law dictionary came out decades before even the venerable OED? Do you know what OED stands for? If your answer to these questions is “no”, or even if it’s “yes”, this is the place for you to learn all about dictionaries!
