For foreign language stuff, or ancient languages nobody really uses anymore, I like Word Gumbo at http://www.wordgumbo.com/index.htm

Maybe somebody will read my Buffy stuff and immediately recognize that the demons have Hittite names, but then again maybe not Rolling Eyes

Anybody heard of this little website?

[url] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page [/url]

I use it all the time. So helpful, for those little things that don't have to be alllll that factual or if you just want to check what you already know. And as I always say, the combined knowledge of many stupid people is still greater than the single knowledge of one stupid person.
