Dic

clipping and Zero-derivation
To look up the definition of a word in a dictionary.
 
"I don't know what this word means. Let's dic it."
Etymology : Zero-derivation of the noun "dic," which in turn is the clipping of the word "dictionary." "Dictionary" is zero-derived into the form of a verb, which is then clipped perhaps for humor's sake.
