Use A Thesaurus to Make Your Writing More Interesting

A thesaurus is a resource that provides synonyms [words that mean the same] for other words.

It is best not to use the very same word over and over in the same paragraph and/or joural entry.  As the illustration above suggests,the words “growl,” “snarl,” and “roar” could  all be used to say many of the same things.

To find an online thesaurus type

In the window, type the word for which you want to find synonyms.  

Then click on the magnifying glass; and a list of synonyms for that word will appear


Antonyms are words that mean just the opposite
