I cheated and looked this up on They show this as being another name for coriander. They gave the following information for cilantro: "1) Old World herb with aromatic leaves and seed resembling parsley." Other names for this: coriander, coriandrum sativum. "2) Parsley-like herb used as seasoning or garnish." Other names: coriander, Chinese parsley. I use at least once during every internet session. They are very handy as my dictionary while I am doing almost anything on the computer. When I am reading things from the Internet, I have to look up words and people and places. When I need to know the definition, they've got it! It's free of charge, and very handy. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone who uses the computer!
