Just stumbled upon a question that was looking for a specific word. The one I had in mind was not there, so I thought I add it as an answer.
As all other answers were backed up by links to dictionaries, which appeared to be a good practice I should adopt, I tried to do the same.
On my internet search for the phrase, I stumbled upon some bad online dictionaries like those that machine translate text (or whatever), etc. Then, there was http://en.wiktionary.org/ and I used it.
Now checking other answers I see that they link to dictionaries with more prestigious names that are probably mroe reliable sources. This made me wonder: is wiktionary a good dictionary to link to on this site?
Is there a list here on meta of dictionaries that are considered "good"? I couldn't find any.
