I would cite the source, of course. I just want to be sure and get the opinions of experienced hubbers.
How do you, personally, deal with words you want to define within your hub?
Dictionary entries are subject to the "fair use" doctrine of copyright law, which would allow you to quote definitions for individual terms (as opposed to, say, copying a substantial part of a dictionary page covering several terms). HubPages looks for duplicate content no matter the source, so you may want to request a review of the hub prior to publishing if the amount of references is significant.
If you get caught in the duplicate content filter, or if the moderator doing a manual review finds that the amount of duplicate words is too high compared with the total article length, you can create screenshot images of the dictionary references and insert these as images into your hub instead.

I would like to make a suggestion to the TEAM here on HUB Pages. I feel that it would be a positive improvement here on the HUB, if all of the activity that is perpetuated by Hubbers, were made known.For instance... apparently - anyone can go around giving thumbs UP or DOWN to a fellow...

Having hubhopped for a wee while, I came across the usual dross. Low quality, spun content, copied content. Of the ones I hopped through, 7 (no avatar, profile info etc) had just joined and thrown up hasty hubs that were basic SEO stuff - written just for a couple of backlinks. Then there was this...
