Q. How do I reference from an online dictionary?
To see an example for an online dictionary citation:
- Visit APA Help
- Click on References and In-text Citation Examples
- Click Other
- Look for Definitions.
The basic formula is:
Title of the entry. (year). In Name of Dictionary in italics. Retrieved from website address.
If a year is not listed, use n.d. which stands for no date.
