Polish your vocabulary using an online thesaurus. These sites will lead you to exactly the right word:

  • Thesaurus.com (http://thesaurus.com) allows you to fine-tune your search. Narrow the results to a particular part of speech or click on related searches.
  • Synonyms.net (www.synonyms.net) suggests terms as you enter a word into the search box. You can also select a language from a drop-down menu and translate the word.
  • Thsrs (www.ironicsans.com/thsrs) provides only synonyms that are shorter than the original word. That’s handy when you must be concise, such as on Twitter.
  • Snappy Words (www.snappywords.com) displays results like a color-coded mind map. For example, nouns appear in blue circles and verbs inside green circles. Mouse over a word to see its definition.
