Data Dictionary, Hierarchy Chart, Flowchart, and Pseudocode

Looking up a word in a dictionary can be a complicated process. For example, assume you want to look up "logic." You might open the dictionary to a random page and see "juice." You know this word comes alphabetically before "logic," so you flip forward and see "lamb." That is still not far enough, so you flip forward and see "monkey." You have gone too far, so you flip back, and so on. Draw a structured flowchart or write pseudocode that describes the process of looking up a word in a dictionary. Pick a word at random and have a fellow student attempt to carry out your instructions.
