  1. Hello,
    My name is Serge. I was working on research of linguistic tools and found your site. This page – contains a really great list of resources and I want to say thanks for it! Also, I want to suggest a one more link to a definition dictionary which I use frequently (Apart from definitions it provides rhymes, quotes and idioms). I see that you already have a few links to the related services on this page, so adding – probably would be a good new opportunity for your visitors to find more information.
