Q1. Do you often use a dictionary? If yes. How often and what for?
Yes. I use the dictionary daily. I am a student, and my all subjects are in English. So to check the exact meaning of the word, I use a mobile dictionary.
OR
I am a teacher. I use a dictionary daily while preparing a lecture that I am going to present the next day.

Q2. Do you prefer to use an electronic dictionary or a dictionary made of paper?
Today’s era is the era of technology. So I like to use E- dictionary because it is easy to carry we don’t need to take an extra bag. I installed a dictionary app on my mobile phone. I use an electronic dictionary because it saves time. We can simply type words in the search box, and I get results within seconds after pressing the search button, but it is not possible in the paper dictionary because we have to search word one by one which consumes a lot of time.

Q3. If someone gave you a dictionary as a gift. How would you feel?
I feel happy and appreciate his/ her thought of giving a dictionary as a gift. It is a precious gift for me because through it. I can improve my vocabulary.

Q4. Do you think it would be interesting to write a dictionary?
Well, I think it is not only interesting, but a stressful job to write a dictionary. People who use it do blindly trust on the writer that he/she writes the right meaning of the word. Moreover, the writer gets a chance to get new information about a word.

Q5. What kind of person do you think writes a dictionary?
Well, it is a very tough job to write a dictionary because a person who writes a dictionary have to know the origin of the word, meaning and its usage. So I think. a patience person and person who have excellent knowledge about the words can write a dictionary
