free online dictionary that anyone can edit
(Redirected from Simple English Wiktionary)

Wiktionary is a project in the form of a wiki to develop an online dictionary so that English-speakers can look up the meanings for words in any of the languages which Wiktionary supports (which is most of them). Wiktionary is also a thesaurus, so you can compare meanings within a language. Wiktionary is run by the Wikimedia Foundation, which also runs Wikipedia and other projects. The English Wiktionary currently has pages for over 7.1 million words and phrases, and 3.9 million users. Right now you are reading Wiktionary in Simple English, but like the other Wikimedia projects, the dictionary and thesaurus has projects run by speakers of several different languages; which language you are looking at can be selected from the main page.
