Wordnik: Smart Words

Wordnik shows definitions from multiple sources, so you can see as many different takes on a word's meaning as possible.

Wordnik doesn't yet allow user-contributed definitions. If you'd like to add a definition, you can log in and leave a comment.

Logged-in Wordniks can leave comments on word pages, list pages, and user profile pages. To link to another word page from within a comment, use single brackets (like so: [word]). Simple links and formatting are also permitted.
Comments are the place to add new examples of a word's use, short definitions of your own, or simply your own opinion about a word.

Wordnik includes example sentences from major news media (such as the Wall Street Journal and USA Today) and from books from Project Gutenberg and the Internet Archive, as well as from other sources across the web, including blogs.
