As your attorney, we advise you to be careful what you look up in the dictionary.

Some look-up patterns suggest what people are doing at the time. For instance, traffic to the mobile Merriam-Webster site “increases substantially after work hours,” with the word “qi” among the most-looked-up words on the mobile site, Mr. Sokolowski says. “A reasonable conclusion is that people use their smartphones to look up words more often when they are away from work and that they play Scrabble or Words With Friends when not at the office during the day.”
