Three Dictionary And Thesaurus Alternatives
Dictionaries are hard to browse, and a thesaurus can be a dangerous tool for writers, especially when every word it shows you is longer than the one you originally searched. Sometimes you need to find a related word, or maybe even a shorter word, but not exactly a synonym. In honor of Dictionary Day in the U.S. (I know, I know, there’s a day for everything), here are three websites to help you find the word you’re looking for.

Visual Thesaurus

Visual Thesaurus

Visual Thesaurus is the perfect tool for those moments when the right word is on the tip of your tongue. When you search for a word in the Visual Thesaurus, you’ll get a display of related words that are mapped by meaning. Sometimes a synonym just won’t cut it—click through the Visual Thesaurus until you land on the perfect word.

Thsrs

George Orwell said “Never use a long word where a short one will do,” and it’s great advice for web writers. If you have a word in mind but you’re looking for a shorter one to replace it, plug it into Thsrs and see what you get. It’s a helpful copywriting trick, and it comes in handy for tweets that are just a little longer than 140 characters.
