Stuck on Dictionary

Hi -
Having a great time with K3, thoroughly enjoying it.
However at the moment I'm totally stumped on how to look a word up in their dictionary. Been trying since yesterday afternoon, and can't find out.
It's probably right under my nose...

It's clearly explained in the user guide - you might find it instructive to read this.

Use the 5-way navigation control to select the word you want to look up. You'll see a brief definition at the top of the screen. Press the <Enter> key on the keyboard to see the complete definition.

Thank you ~ it must have been information overload caused me to miss this. I'd been so used to the Bookeen Cybook Gen 3, I kept looking for "Look up" and that little square box.
This is my first experience with Kindle.
