    Funk & Wagnalls College Standard Dictionary ©1940
    I keep it right next to my computer for those times when I don’t believe Wikipedia.

    @Tony Rubino

    yup, more than one and in several different languages, but i hardly use them these days since it’s easier to find everything on line

    Everywhere!
    By my chair, by the bed, in the bathroom….
    my favorite is Webster’s Collegiate … there’s one from the late 1920’s, one from the mid 60’s, a “new” one from I think 1995….


    American Heritage from the 70’s — nice illustrations, lousy, weak binding…
    Random House, late 1990’s… not that great…
    a couple of pretty useless off-brand paperbacks that showed up somehow…


    Plus French and Spanish….

    But I admit that if I’m near my computer or my (smart) phone, I usually try Google first….
    unless I’m after the etymology, for which the dictionary is sometimes better.

    Yes a Webster Collegiate can’t tell what year right now because of COL. LOL.

    Yup. Several of them. My favorite is one that belonged to my dad. It’s about 4 inches thick, and contains a regular dictionary, a medical dictionary, foreign words and phrases, and a business manual for writing letters. He dropped out of school to join the US Navy, and this helped him advance through the ranks.

    I have 3 – my grandfather’s, my father’s, and my French Larousse from high school

    several but I use online dictionaries more. If I can’t spell the word how can I use a book dictionary to verify the spelling? At least the computer auto correct gives me a chance.

    yes but use the computer dictionary most often.

    Of course I do. I’m 56, and have never been able to throw away a book.

    Yes. It is about a foot thick and was handed down from my wife’s mother who got it from her mother.

    Yes, I have some. It’s sacrilegious to throw away a dictionary – isn’t it?

    As far as the microwave thing – been there, done that.
