I’ve always wondered what other people do when they come across a word/phrase that they’ve never heard before. I mean, do they jot it down on paper so they can look it up later, or do they stop reading to look it up on the dictionary/google it or do they just continue reading and forget about the word?
I'm such a word nerd. Not only do I keep a dictionary beside me when I read. If I come across a word I don't know, I not only look it up, but I highlight it in the dictionary. Then, I don't close the dictionary until I find another word on that page or the facing page that I don't know. I highlight that one too. Periodically, I go through my dictionary and re-read the words to refresh my memory.
