Part 3 Dictionaries (10 points)**

People often say things like “But the dictionary says this!” in arguments. People often believe that dictionaries are the final authority when it comes to what a word means. Contrary to popular belief, the dictionary is not the ultimate authority of language and meaning, and the dictionary does not have the final say in debates. Think about our discussion of dictionaries in class and explain in a few sentences why this is the case in your own words. Include in your discussion what the purpose of a dictionary actually is.

**Note: the point value of a question (here, 10 points) reflects the importance of the question, rather than the anticipated length of your answer. A higher point value does *not* necessarily mean that you should write an essay. A longer answer does *not* necessarily equate to a higher grade. The most impressive answers are succinct, concise, accurate, use effective reasoning and/or examples, and make the point without an excessive amount of sentences.
