Now who would do something like this? What do they hope to accomplish. Who do they think they're helping?


I suspect it's making you click on the link to generate another page view and download another set of advertisements.


Dictionaries have done this before the internet existed.

You are right, I just checked some offline dictionaries and they indeed do. In my defence, in the other two languages I speak they usually group things under the root of the word. Here's a screenshot of a website that does this. In offline versions they usually do it in one wrapping line with the root replaced with ~ to save space.

I saw this and it reminded me of this thread.

Isn't this just a way to decrease verbosity by refering to existing entries (e.g. epithelium).


There's no need to do that though when you're looking for entries, not whole books.
