How often do you look up words on either the Dictionary or the Thesaurus? Do you read it online or offline? Do you ever read them for fun or maybe you use them to practice for a test?

Occasionally I use my browser's inbuilt spellcheck to make sure I spell something correctly. Aside from that, I have a reasonably good grasp on the English language to not need it.
Today I don't need to reach your deafened ears and
I don't need to try and fill your empty heart, 'cause
All I need now is the agony I see upon your face,
That's good enough for me
In the end

I use Google's define function on a fairly regular basis to double check the definitions for certain words I am using. I am also quite dependent on built in spell checkers. I can also find field specific dictionaries to provide for recreational reading. Although this can also prove to be a source of irritation when they present definitions which I disagree with.

I have both a Dictionary and a Thesaurus on the floor by my desk for use. I use them from time to time.

I love to learn new words everyday from dictionary.  I use dictionary offline as well as online. There are many websites online which provide dictionary with each word explain with examples.
