Seventh Day of Christmas

Forgive me while I catch up on the days of Christmas - I was outside DC for a few days visiting family!

On the Seventh Day of Christmas the Fieldlearning blog gave to me seven websites about words.

Merriam-Webster On-line
has some neat features, including audio pronunciation, a word of the day subscription and a new dictionary for teens and adults learning English as a Second Language.

The American Heritage dictionary has words indexed by whether or not they have notes in certain catagories like: word histories and synonyms.

If you really need to know a word history, try here or here (a monthly word origin webzine).

Onto the Eighth Day!
