WordWeb – Find Definitions and Synonyms of Words

Submitted by on September 7, 2009 – 10:00 pm2 Comments


WordWeb is a powerful free English thesaurus and dictionary. Find definitions and synonyms, as well as various sets of related words. Find definitions and synonyms with one-click search!

The database has over 150 000 root words and 120 000 synonyms. The program can be used on its own or with almost any Windows program.

WordWeb Pro can look up words in virtually any program with just one click: just hold down the Ctrl key and click on the word. If you are online, with one extra click you can also search web references, for example Wikipedia. The hotkey can be customized, or you can use a keyboard shortcut if you prefer.

If you are editing a document you can select a synonym and replace the look-up word. WordWeb has the option to highlight widely used synonyms, great for helping you write clear easy-to-understand English.

If you are looking for a particular part of speech you can click on the Noun, Verb, Adjective or Adverb buttons to show only the relevant synonyms and related words. To look at a particular sense you can click on the sense number.

Browsing around related words is simple: click on the tabs for synonyms, antonyms, parts, part of, types, type of, similar, see also, and anagrams. To see the definition for one of the related words double-click on the word. You can also use the back and forward buttons.

Related words also have “+” and “-” buttons to be more or less specific. For example if you look at the similar words, maybe you’d like to see words that are more loosely similar: you can do this by pressing the “+” button, and go back again by pressing the “-” button.
