Q. Do I need to cite definitions from a dictionary, and how do I annotate them?


If you are directly quoting from a dictionary definition, then you cite it as a Reference Book.The Library Citation Guide will assist you with that. Click on the Quick Link from the Library Home Page to view that guide. It would be rather uncommon to annotate a dictionary, so you should check with your Professor to see it they want you to annotate dictionaries.
