Suggested by Nithin:
I’ve always wondered what other people do when they come across a word/phrase that they’ve never heard before. I mean, do they jot it down on paper so they can look it up later, or do they stop reading to look it up on the dictionary/google it or do they just continue reading and forget about the word?

It depends- if it is at the end of the story,pharagraph,chapter- I will stop to look it up. If it is in the middle of the sentence - I ask my husband- English is after all his first language- but inevitably he wont know either. Usually then he is intrigued enough to get up an look the word up.But I hate not knowing the meaning of a word- It drives me dilly.
