You deserve to be slapped for looking up dictionary in the dictionary!......retard!
If some one is dumb enough to look up dictionary IN a dictionary, is an example really going to be sufficient to clear things up for them?

A word that doesn't need to be in the dictionary because if you know what the word means then there is no point to looking it up and if you don't know what a dictionary is, you will not be looking it up in one

Tom: Go look it up in the dictionary.

A tool one may use if they need to know the definition or meaning of a word.

They usually use the very word you are trying to look up in the definition, OR in other cases, give you a whole other word you do not know so that you are forced to go on a wild goose chase to understand said words. After the hunt, you must then piece the parts together like a puzzle and rewrite it into a proper definition.

However, Most of the time, you still have no idea what the fuck they were trying to say OR the definition you put together using their clues end up completely wrong. There are very few dictionary's available that actually GIVE you the definition you are looking for.

There are many forms of dictionaries. There's Book form's, as well as Electronic dictionaries that can be found on handheld devices. There are also many Online dictionaries available within this modern age. Many of these online dictionaries allow anyone to edit entries and update definitions, leading to the definitions being always up-to-date and ALWAYS ACCURATE BECAUSE THIS IS THE INTERNET

The "Drug" used to obtain a natural high (when you are out of it. can be compared to getting high off of Love or Life). Usually caused by being sleep deprived, an enormous amount of exercise, or even being extremely bored. WARNING: An overdose could cause; dizziness, forgetfulness, and hallucinations. Not A REAL Drug... Hopefully. :D
Dictionary was so high off of gravity after the drumline competition. And only getting 4 hours of sleep caused him to overdose. hopefully he won't hit the hallucinations with another sleepless night caused by the STUPID RESEARCH PAPER!

A dictionary is a collection of words in a specific language, often listed alphabetically, with definitions, etymologies, phonetics, pronunciations, and other information;1 or a book of words in one language with their equivalents in another, also known as a lexicon.1 According to Nielsen 2008 a dictionary may be regarded as a lexicographical product that is characterised by three significant features: (1) it has been prepared for one or more functions; (2) it contains data that have been selected for the purpose of fulfilling those functions; and (3) its lexicographic structures link and establish relationships between the data so that they can meet the needs of users and fulfil the functions of the dictionary.
In many languages, words can appear in many different forms, but only the undeclined or unconjugated form appears as the headword in most dictionaries. Dictionaries are most commonly found in the form of a book, but some newer dictionaries, like StarDict and the New Oxford American Dictionary are dictionary software running on PDAs or computers. There are also many online dictionaries accessible via the Internet.
