One of my favorite sites for reference is Bartleby.com. The site has dictionary, thesaurus, and reference books in one place. For almost any word, there are references that include definitions, usage, quotes from poetry and novels, and encyclopedia entries. As a test I looked up the words “dusk,” “light,” “earthworm” (13 references, including the many synonyms for earthworm), “love,” and anything else that popped into my mind. For the word “nope,” I got references that included quotes from novels as well as the word’s likely etymology.

I like for the “search” box to be set at “All Bartleby,” although you can limit it to individual sources.
