Sidebar: my favorite online dictionary now has a paywall. That is too bad. The fee itself my not be too unreasonable, except it is in a foreign currency. Thus the fee will fluctuate according to global exchange rates. Payment will also include a currency exchange surcharge. I’m skeptical as to whether or not the cost or nuisance is worth the occasional value. Going forward, I will be using wiktionary as my primary word definition resource.
