I've found google to be a pretty effective dictonary, to be honest. If I'm writing a report or something work related - I'll google a term I'm not sure about. www.m-w.com works well too, but I usually use google. And I'm not the only one.

I'm sure people like me don't skew the results too badly. I highly doubt individuals are writing work related reports about Rachael Ray & Scarlett Johansson.

I'm just surprised there are this many people looking up Marie Antoinette. :confused:New film about Marie starring Kirsten Dunst opens this weekend. That might have something to do with it. ;)
