Online Game Dictionaries:

  • – various languages, crosswords, legal, medical, acronyms, jargon
  • Merriam-Webster OnLine – Free, searchable online dictionary and thesaurus, word games, a word of the day, and many other English language and vocabulary reference tools and resources.
  • Strange and Unusual Dictionaries – “Resources for Scrabble games, bar bets, and other trivial pursuits.”
