Wik that Word!

Where Words Reminisce

Have you ever been fumbling around for the meaning of some word that you heard Dr. Jenkins use? Do you need help remembering the few basic Latin words that you use regularly? Well, you could go somewhere like http://www.dictionary.com, or you could use Wikipedia’s lesser known brother, Wiktionary. Wiktionary has an extensive database of languages ranging from Greek to Danish to Spanish to Japanese. It will supply you with a definition, etymology, gender, and even declensions for just about any term you can throw at it. Wiktionary also connects to many other Wikimedia sites, Wikipedia primarily.
