Online Glossaries

No work today, just play…

I’ve just added the beta version of the Metaglossary.com website to my blogroll.

The good point is that for any given word you enter, it returns a number of definitions and most importantly a list of online glossaries in which that word or phrase or acronym is listed.

Careful though! When I typed UNESCO, this is one definition that came up:

United Nations Environmental, Scientific and Cultural Organisation

Oops, that’s not exactly the right answer, is it? (Correct answer: United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation). So the good thing is that several answers are displayed. (I’m notifying the source of the glossary so they can amend it).

Registered users are allowed to provide other answers, too.
