I’m wondering what other people do when they come across a word/phrase that they’ve never heard before. Do you jot it down on paper so you can look it up later, or do you stop reading to look it up on the dictionary/google it, or do you just continue reading and forget about the word?
Overall I'm a jot it down and look it up at the end of the chapter, kinda gal. When I was younger I would just skip over it. But I like to look it up now. I rarely stop reading to look it up though, I write the page number it was on when I take the note down to look it up later. I must admit though, that while reading Jane Eyre, I learned to read it next to my computer so that every time her student said something (in french, which I never took in school) I could immediately look it up on the google translator and know what the heck they were talking about.
So how about you? How do you handle a word that stumps you?
