  • I would go with this question for the base for the duplicate. It has a great answer, courtesy @StoneyB, and some of those other questions have wonky contexts. – user6951 Mar 11 '15 at 21:41
  • @δοῦλος I think you picked the best one. When I did the search I didn't expect to have so many to sort through and was short on time. – ColleenV Mar 11 '15 at 23:42

Both options are correct.

Option #1 is more common.

Option #2 has a stronger implication that the dictionary should still be where "you put it".
