Some examples of the definitions given by the stupid English dictionary:

(1)
pert
adj.
characterized by a lightly pert and exuberant quality

(2)
thimble
n.
1.
as much as a thimble will hold

(3) eminently
adv.
in an eminent manner

(4) indefinitely
adv.
to an indefinite extent; for an indefinite time

(5)inexorably
adv.
in an inexorable manner

(6)vindication
n.
1.
the act of vindicating or defending against criticism or censure etc.

......

Well, such circular explanations are not only retarded but also disgusting and vomiting. Please check out each word above in Oxford Dictionary you will find how excellent the Oxford dict is.

I will not name the moronic dictionary, which is free of charge after all. But being free does not bestow it the right to torture its users. Many online dictionaries are both good and free, you know.

These aren't definitions; they're examples of the words' usages.

@InfraBlue,
The "lexicographers" are at their wit's end.
