Synonym Dictionary

When I need to look for a meaning of any word I usually use Wordreference as it offers many meanings depending or the context this word is used. Moreover, there are several sentences and expressions taken as an example in which this word is used, that is the reason that made me choose this web page as my main dictionary when I am working on computer. Nevertheless, I do not use to find synonyms on Wordreference, but only the definition of the word so I had to look for other web pages on the Internet.

After having taken a look on some web pages, I have selected Yourdictionary in order to know which dictionary I can choose as a synonym dictionary. Luckily,  by clicking on one of the top page’s buttons called Other Dictionaries, I have found a page which offers many links of online dictionaries and I have selected that one : Synonym Dictionary

That online free dictionary is a great resource for English synonyms, antonyms and definitions.  To begin with, type in a word and the synonym finder will come up with a list of synonyms. Then, the antonym tool can be used to find antonyms and check out the definitions feature to read the definition. I will start with the word “pretty” taken as an example in order to take a look at the synonyms:

As we can see, the finder give us some alternatives we can use instead of “pretty” depending on the sense of the word. Moreover, there is the choice of browsing the antonym and the definition of the same word:

Finally, I will show the option of browsing the definition of the word searched:

Finally, I would like to point out that this web page also contains some sponsored links that can be useful.
