The Dictionary

Word 2001 includes a new dictionary feature that enables you to look up word meanings and usage—right from within Word. You can use this feature to make sure the words you use in your documents are the right ones to get your message across. You can also use the dictionary to look up the meanings of words in Word documents written by others.
