Frequenters of the New York Times website might have already noticed this, but this is a feature worth re-noticing!
How many times have you shown a little frustration when an interesting article suddenly sends down a difficult-word-bouncer? Most of the times, in my case for sure, you'd just skip that word and move on. The feature I am talking about it precisely for such yous.
While reading any article on the NYTimes, if you come across such difficult word as you never knew, simply hightlight it using the mouse, and a question-mark will appear. To know the its meaning take little trouble and click the question-mark, you'll get the meaning.
Isn't it a simple innovation worth thousand (difficult) words?
