The New Dictionary Feature of MyEc. ^_^

Once in a while someone have done a useful upgrade to us. Well, it's not like all other upgrades have been non useful though, and probably I didn't mean also, that all those times when I have logged in, and here haven't been any new features and upgrades added. The ones responsible, just are siting idly doing nothing... :P But maybe they actually are doing that, and maybe there have been only meaningless upgrades too. So just in case, I actually felt the need to emphasize the fact, that this time it's useful.. Yeah, just in case. :P

Anyway, it's very simple and practical add. And I like it.

It's a dictionary box at bottom of the page, siting in front the chartroom box. It's actually very logical that it's right before chartroom.. It's in the order of the importance, isn't? Yeah, I just don't like to chat. :P

Anyway, this dictionary (thesaurus) gives explanation of some English words.. It's useful when don't know the meaning of some word, it gives you the list of synonyms, when double click on word that you want to check at page. It's also useful, if u don't know how to pronounce some word. It have capability to speech it for you. Or when u are typing a comment and then don't remember, if the bath was written with "p" or with "b", u can check it up.. The double click won't work from typing/input field though.. in this case u have to manually copy it to dictionary box.

It happens to me all the time, that I have forgot which "p" I had to use, "b" or "p". Because I don't know the correct pronunciation of English, I have hard to remember such things.. usually u would know the difference by sounding, but without knowing the correct sounding it's difficult....

Anyways, good to have this new feature.. Yet, it doesn't have all modern English words in it's database. Example about a this thing called "blog", it have never heard about.. Well actually many dictionaries and spell-checkers don't know how to blog. But it's still good to have this dictionary. ^_^



Well, I believe, that there's actually a lot of words, that he don't know. He didn't know also wahat is Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.. But who needs a word like that anyways. Even when words as difficult as that exist, it's better not to even know that they exist, right? :P

I just love the dictionary tool!

That's a good review, Hardi..

Oh wait, sorry... That is where the dictionary being placed if you are not online... Forget my question then :D

Comment by Syubidupapap on March 8, 2012 at 9:53

before I had that dictionary being placed like this

and now I have it like this. It doesn't bother me much as before, but if I typed a long sentence then of course I can't see it because it covers my typing.

Is it what happen with all of you? Where does the dictionary box placed in your screen? Because I see some of you have it next to the main room as Hardi has shown the screen shot

Oh well, the dictionary box has moved now... It is on the bottom right corner of the main room. Good thing finally. Thanks ^^

Hardi, I did that every time I come online, refreshing the page. I did that actually to catch the speaker button before the dictionary box showed up again so I can mute it, but everything is still the same as the pic I have shown you below.

FYI I am using google chrome here, but don't know why on my laptop (also using google chrome) the dictionary box is placed on the bottom right corner of the main room as the pic Yasemin has showed us.

@Syubidupapap It might get fixed, when you click your browser's page-reload/refresh button.. Or if not, then maybe there's also need to clear some browser storing cache.. How to do it, I don't know. It's different for different computers.

But just refreshing page should help. It was like so to me too. For my desktop computer the changes Josef made were quickly visible, but my netbook showed it still at old place. That's until I did hit the page reload button. ^_^

Still the same for me Tara

@Syu Josef moved the Dictionary app over to fix that problem. Is it still bugging you?

Comment by Tara Benwell on March 6, 2012 at 16:24

Amazing! Just when I thought Hardi was going all serious on us, he pulled one of his most hilarious jokes yet. I just love the end of this post! I can't believe our new Dictionary Helper doesn't know the word "blog". 

I don't know if any of you watch American Idol, but there's a kid on there called Heejun and he reminds me of Hardi.
