Double-click dictionary search
Did you know that you can get an instant definition of any word on this page, just by double-clicking on it?
Try it now! Double-click on any of the following words to see the definition: a, opt, psychology, stop, walk.
You can also look up phrases, such as a bite to eat. Just use your mouse to highlight the phrase and click on the word Definition when it appears.
You can add this functionality to your site as well — follow the instructions:
Finally, call the setupDoubleClick function by adding an onload attribute to your HTML body element.
<body onload=" setupDoubleClick( 'http://dictionary.cambridge.org/', 'british', false, null, 5, 'popup' ) ">
Please note that while we try to ensure this is compatible with commonly used desktop browsers including Internet Explorer 6-9, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari 4, users of touchscreen devices which do not have a mouse and do not ‘click’ will unfortunately not be able to take advantage of this, so you may also want to consider adding a search widget to your site.
