I also suggest: https://www.english-corpora.org/coca/. Corpora are a great tool for speaking/writing native-like. They are based on deep research regarding the spoken language, so they are, most of times, more trustful than the ordinary dictionaries, I mean, when you consider Use of English skills.

While this is a useful resource, it isn't a dictionary or at least it's not the type that will work in the reading tool.

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Glosbe is a good multilingual corpus but corpora have their own problems, even if they did work in the tool, I'm not sure I'd recommend them just for the fact that they're prone to some idiosyncratic usages and errors. We can always keep our own dict open in pop up form for it I reckon so if we did want to use a corpus, we could! :D Maybe a list of corpora is due in the near future for advanced users.
