I wonder does anybody know of a GOOD online Portuguese Portuguese dictionary please.
I use the Houaiss paper one, but it would be nice to have access to a good online one as well. I believe the Aurélio is available online to UOL subscribers, but unfortunately I am not a UOL subscriber.
Thank you in advance,
Colin, if you're in Brazil, wander over to the nearest good bookstore and, if it's still published, buy the Dicionário Novo Aurélio da Língua Portuguesa Século XXI with CD-ROM. It's the large tome with a CD-ROM inside. I did that in Fortaleza in 2000 and continue to use the CD-ROM all the time. The version with CD-ROM costs maybe $50 U.S. more, but it's well worth it. My software even came with its own spell-checker that you can run with Microsoft Word (although if you're in Brazil I assume your version of Word already has spell-checking in Portuguese). Good luck.
