Using a Dictionary or Glossary
Many words have more than one meaning, or definition. You can use a dictionary or a glossary to check the exact meaning of a word or a phrase. A dictionary lists words in alphabetical order. Each entry gives the pronunciation, the part of speech, and the meaning of the word. A glossary is like a dictionary. It is an alphabetical list of vocabulary words in a book. Each entry explains the meaning of a word as it is used in that book. To find the right meaning of a word, first read all the definitions. Then see which meaning makes sense in the sentence you are reading.
