Default Dictionaries etc

I have just codified my list of word-useful websites, and thought I would share it with you:
dictionary.reference.com
My favourite: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Encyclopedia, Web
askoxford.com
An excellent tool and a wealth of other word things.
oed.com
A subscription service
dictionary.langenberg.com
a way into all the other dictionaries, and other things as well
en.wikipedia.org
Contribute what you think is the meaning, and read theirs. urbandictionary.com
Rude descriptions of words used on the street
wordweb.info
install this and have it accessible from all your programs
quotationsbook.com
Choose your subject, or your author, and read.
lssu.edu/banished
yesterday's buzz-words that should now be pensioned off.
Gutenburg free books
18,000 free online books in the Gutenberg Catalog.
