Dictionaries etches words in your mind.Dictionary is the best source to improve vocabulary of any language we are interested in. I still remember that when I was promoted to class VI, my elder brother gifted me my first pocket size English-Urdu dictionary. I still remember many of new words which I learnt from that dictionary as if they're etched with mind. I used to write new words on a notebook and learn them by heart as I was directed to do so.
Now we are living in the age of internet where ocean of knowledge is on finger tips. Today, all of us, including students, hardly buy dictionary from the market, rather they prefer to download dictionaries from different websites. I have also downloaded two dictionaries. But I experience a big difference that now I search new words, use them and sometimes forget them. They don't stay in memory for a long time. What do you say about it?
