    I'm sure that, a few weeks ago, right-clicking on a word had the option to Search in Wikipedia.

    Or am I going mad?

    Isn't the option to look up in Wikipedia in Dictionary?

    I do use other browser's but for the point of this post it was necessary to use safari

    It does,once you click on look up in dictionary it takes you too the dictionary where Wikipedia is as you know, but what i thought the OP was saying is that in the window that comes up once you right click on a word it say's look up in Wikipedia in that window

    It's the same as it was just look up in Dictionary and you also get Wikipedia, Thesaurus, and Apple search.

    I know it can be done through dictionary, but the original question was is it possible to have it in the contextual menu?

    I must have read it wrong then as i thought you said "I'm sure it was their a few weeks ago", & not asking if it's possible to have it their,that's why i posted my screenshot of it not being their. As to your now question i don't know but someone else might

    He might not have typed what he meant to say but you and I didn't read his original question wrong.;) It is clear and unambiguous.
