Description

This title provides instant access for PC users to 190,000 definitions and over 325,000 synonyms and antonyms. You should never be at a loss for words again, as this 190,000-word dictionary includes: 14,000 new and updated entries; etymologies; pronunciations; examples of words in use; in-depth information on how to use words appropriately, and more. There is a 325,000-word thesaurus which includes antonyms; a definitions search to find a word when you only know its definition, or have a vague idea of what it means; a wildcard search finds a word when you only know part of the word, for example, type "dra*" and get a list of 149 words beginning with "dra*", including "drachma"; anagram search finds all the words that can be made with the letters of a word. For example, type "cat sat on the mat" and get a list of 9 words with 8 letters or more, including "test match"; and the browse function lets you look through the entire dictionary or thesaurus one word at a time.show more
