"I'm very sensitive to the English language. I studied the dictionary obsessively when I was a kid and collect old dictionaries. Words, I think, are very powerful and they convey an intention." - Drew Barrymore.

How often do you just browse through words? Do you ever find that when you read the definition of one word, you discover that the definition includes another word you are not sure about and need to look up, only to repeat the process? If you are curious about language, you might embark on a neverending journey just by looking up that first word!

Many dictionaries are online, which is useful, since language is always in the process of change. New English words are being added all the time, while other words fall out of favour. Meanings which are no longer in use are referred to as "archaic", while some nearly forgotten words are referred to as "obsolete".
