This is a resource for synonyms masiquest. It could be a valuable tool for finding substitute words for just about anything, but it may also help you if you’re looking to make your writing more colorful or less repetitive. So dive right in and start learning!

1. The Synonym Finder

The synonym finder (just type “synonym” into the browser, accept the terms of use and you’re good to go) has a searchable dictionary of synonyms. See a word that you want to learn the meaning for? Just type it into the box, click on the icon in the top left corner that looks like a guy with glasses and your synonyms will display.

2. On The Job

If you work in a job that requires lots of writing, this nifty little tool might be very useful for you: It allows you to search for synonyms based on words from your everyday vocabulary.

3. Look Again

The most helpful synonym dictionary I’ve found is “Look Again”, because it also gives widely understood synonyms, as well as a few obscure ones that would be useful to know if you’re looking for unusual or difficult-to-define words. You can search by common word, meaning, or by using their excellent thesaurus (see below).

4. Thesaurus

If you are unfamiliar with a word and it has been used in your writing before, the thesaurus will help you out because it has over 700 pages of synonyms that are categorized by topic and usage. You can limit your search to only those synonyms that are listed under “Dictionary” for example.

5. Thesaurus.com

Thesaurus.com is a huge and helpful site that has a thesaurus, but it also provides synonyms for words in sentences. It’s an invaluable resource for many reasons and you should definitely check it out if you are interested in expanding your vocabulary.

6. Vocabulary Spelling Bee

If you’re looking to become a more competitive speller, this is not only an excellent site for building and testing your vocabulary, but it has spelling guidelines as well!

7. Wordnet 3.0

Sometimes finding the right word can be hard, but if you take five minutes to look at some of the synonyms from Wordnet 3.0, you will find the right word. Wordnet 3.0 is based on the Princeton Wordnet Project and also provides examples of each synonym.

8. Synonym Dictionary

Synonym Dictionary is a great resource for finding the right word or phrase, especially if you are writing fiction or poetry. Synonym Dictionary has both a synonym search tool as well as a Thesaurus tool that might help you out. It doesn’t have a lot of detail (like most of the other sites), but it’s worth checking out to see if it helps!

9. Synonyms in Context

Synonyms in Context is a good place to look for unusual synonyms, but it’s also just a plain good site for learning new words. What makes it unique is that it provides “context” to the word you are checking out, which is helpful for seeing the word in action. It also has many example sentences, which will help you understand your writing better.

10. Thesaurus: Synonyms and Antonyms

Thesaurus: Synonyms and Antonyms shows both similar and opposite meanings of a word if you type one into the search box in their site. This is a great way to find antonyms and like words so that your writing isn’t repetitive or boring!

11. Word of the Day

Word of the Day is also a great site to look up unusual words. You can choose to have it give you a word in daily news, a word that means something or words that are “on the tip of your tongue”.

12. Word Generation

This site will generate random words that are related to some aspect of your life or your surroundings. Here’s an example: Excuse me, would you please tell me how much these pants cost? The first thing that popped into my mind was “mainly”. The word generation site will also provide synonyms for every word you enter.

13. Word Forge

Word Forge not only allows you to look up words, but it also allows you to generate words that are made using a wide range of prefixes and suffixes. It’s pretty fun to play around with!

14. Rhyme Zone

RhymeZone allows you to put in a word and come up with related words that rhyme or have similar sounds. It’s great for poets, songwriters and people who love haikus or sonnets!

15. Rhyming Dictionary

Rhyming Dictionary is another great site for poets! You can search by rhyming words, meaning or usage. It even has synonyms listed! Using rhyming words to help you write poetry can give your writing a unique and interesting feel.

16. Word Spy

Word Spy is pretty useful for finding synonyms for acronyms and such, but it can also help you find synonyms for words that are more common than your word you want to substitute out. For example, if I were looking for the word “lazy” with a different meaning than the one in the dictionary, I would search for “word spy” instead of searching just “lazy”. The site is based on a concept from the book Word Spy by Adam Gramer.
