A sample search for litigation brings definitions from the following online sources: Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia, Wiktionary, GNU Webster’s 1913, WordNet 3.0.

There are also roughly 10 examples of the word used in a sentence or phrase. You can also search wordlists which contain your specific word, and browse related words.

Once you log-in, you can participate in discussions in forums/Twitter and other online formats. There is a running Twitter feed of posts using the word litigation, as well as visuals, sound bytes and other data about the word.
