Do you have a hard copy dictionary that you still use like a Merriam-Webster?


I still need my dictionary and thesaurus beside be as I'm at my computer writing a hub. I don't use online dictionaries, an installed app/program, or spell checker. What do you use?

    I'm with you, conneauwriter@ya. I don't think I'll ever switch over. I'm usually just checking for basics, not any new words. Thanks for answering.
