Constantly? Why do you assume 'constantly'?

So....if you are reading somewhere besides your home where a paper dictionary is handy, what do you do when you come across a word that you do not know?

Write it down and look it up when you get home? Guess at the meaning?

If a dictionary is at your fingertips, literally, you learn something then and there that stays with you.

If you have to wait until later......maybe not.
