look up any word, like ethered:

A compiled collection of what was every known word still in present use in the english language. It was put together in an attempt to stem the mutation of the already unstable english language and keep it in a fair condition for future generations. Though dialects have evolved since then, it has managed to maintain the grammatical and vocabulary structures of the language to a good enough point that present society can still read old language tracts without much effort. For example of success; latin, due to its spoken frequency and under developed linguistical records, after the collapse of the culture, mutated into the romantic languages of French, Spanish and Italien, while English after subsequent invasions became a hybrid of Norse (Frissian dialect) and Germanic. Only after a dictionary was written around the 17th century did the English language stabalize into its still recognizable form today.

When in doubt, look it up.

What you're reading right now, but without all the assholes, anti-Americans, dumbass n00bs, atrocious grammar, made up words, slang, gibberish, and other crap.
The world is so lazy these days, that instead of reading the dictionary, they wait for the movie.

A very large book full of information about how words are spelled, pronounced, used in a sentence etc.
Although originally intended for reading, the dictionary serves many functions: it can be used as...

1.) a stepstool
2.) a flyswatter
3.) a paperweight
4.) a doorstop
5.) firewood
6.) etc. etc. etc.

Thing you use to look up words you don't understand with definitions filled with words you don't understand and need to look up to understand the definition of the first word you didn't understand.
Man:Look up wishy-washy for me in the dictionary
Woman:*looks up wishy-washy in the dictionary*
Dictionary reads: Wishy-Washy: Ineffectual
Ineffectual: Futile
Futile: Futilis that pours out easily, useless

Woman:...WTF!?
