Has it been a while for you to look up words in an actual, physically-printed dictionary (in the book form, of course)?
We have compiled and listed some of the most common dictionary abbreviations for you to review. The abbreviations next to the word can make a difference in meaning and how you structure a sentence in a paragraph. Without some understanding, a misused word form can cause problems in writing. Be careful and understand the differences when checking out any word in a dictionary!
Let us know if you have any feedback. We will be glad to hear from you.
As always, we would like to be helpful. If you like our blog post, please like this post or follow us. Thank you!
