A nice resource and it's good that it's freely available!

This is the most impressive academic site I have seen, and I have seen many of them! Beautifully designed, remarkably informative, and excellent navigation. I particularly liked the animated development of the alphabet. I will be showing this to all my students, but particularly to my Graphic Design History students. Congratulations.

A very worthwhile addition to the Web. Thanks for creating it!

I'm a 65 year old ESL teacher, currently working in Amman, Jordan. Your site is, quite simply brilliant … Thanks for your work!

Terrific. Mind if I use your site in my courses? Of course I will give full credit.

I am a retired professor of Slavic linguistics. I have already recommended ODLT to a colleague. This does not mean that I agree with all of your definitions.

As an editor for grammar books, I love your website! Please comment on "nominative pronoun." It isn't listed on your website.

Thank you! Helen Borland

[ODLTguy - Thanks for the heads up. I'll make a point of adding it. Cheers.]

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I would like to congratulate you for the brilliant dictionary. It is really very good!

Cheers, Veronica de Silva

I checked out ODLT and I think it's immensely helpful; I'm a magazine editor and I'm constantly having to direct freelance writers to websites that can help them better understand grammar and linguistics, so you should see a lot of traffic headed that way.

BTW, I already love Your ODLT site. English is not my mother tongue and I've spent quite some time leafing through a variety of tutorials to find the information you so easily give away for free.

What a wonderful gift you have given all of us who are interested in words, language, and how to use them carefully, wisely...and (I might add) joyfully. Thank you!!!

I love this dictionary! I have posted the specifics to the Copyeditors' List and expect that your traffic will increase in the near future.

I have already started receiving messages from subscribers of the Copyeditors' List, thanking me for posting the URL. Congrats!

I clicked my first click on your alphabet and am in love already. I will immerse myself in this language site as often as I can. How delightful to find this place. I am no scholar and most of the terms you have waiting for me to discover will be new and strange. What a relief to have somewhere to indulge this secret passion. Thank you. It is so good be able to feel at home (virtually) on a site, which I do, as I get your MooT emails and am already familiar with your unpretentious love of words. Best of Luck

I had constructed a pale shadow of this oeuvre of yours, also to aid me in a better understanding of the parts/figures of speech - and I have just found your marvellous pages which dwarf my attempt. Thank you very much, Mr. Moot! The etymology and example sections are beyond pearls

Your ODLT, I like it very much. What a pleasure to be introduced to a site with so many, many words. Here are two for you: Thank you

Brief and clear explanations are quite useful to the beginner or advanced.

Hey. I took a look at ODLT. What a great idea! I am almost clueless when it comes to terms used to talk about language, but haven't come upon a way of remedying that without devoting more time than I have for linguistic study. Thanks for making this available.

Very useful, especially for those whom have suffered the injustice of a mid 1980's Leftist post-modernist education, where speaking and writing one's own langauge is considered subordinate to all manner of useless humanities and post-modernist dogma of social studies. etc

Hi there, I heard about MooT through the A Word A Day newsletter as it was a link at the bottom that I decided to explore. Very entertaining and educational! Also, I think your Online Dictionary of Language site is great. I'm a student pursuing a double major in English, so your explanation of so many literary and linguistic terms is fantastic and most useful! Thanks

Kathryn Stumpf



ODLT is a marvelous contribution. I note virgule's slant isn't discussed altho solidus' slant is contrasted with "forward slash." It would help if this distinction is continued in considering virgule. Best regards.

Thank you for the link that was published in Anu Garg's AWADmail #434 yesterday. I'm a language practitioner, and I often have to explain to clients the difference between different parts of speech when they query changes after I've translated or edited their work. Your excellent site will definitely help me a great deal.

This dictionary is great! Thanks--I'm so glad I found it on A-Word-a-Day. I'm a language freak and English teacher, so this will be really helpful!!

I used to consider myself fairly proficient in the English language (US American dialect) until I found your website. In five minutes I found five words I had never seen before, and it looks like there are LOTS more to investigate. I really appreciate the efforts that you, and others like Anu Garg (AWAD), put forth. It makes the day better for a lot of us.

Hats off for your good work. I came by your comment in "Dictionary.com" last week & found the link for the site. Cool. Good work !! I will share the link with my friends and enlighten them too.
