    Hi Khlood – A ‘thesaurus’ is a synonym and antonym dictionary, you can find these online and in bookstores. Also, if you are using an English version of Microsoft Word, you will find this tool in your ‘review’ tab on the left. Definitely use this tool.

    Thesaurus is a dictionary of synonyms and antonyms

    Hi John, Yes, you are right. And, it should be the tool of choice for intermediate to advanced learners of any language when deciphering new words. (not a dictionary).

    Hi @aeadmin, I totally agree with you. Actually I tried to give a very straight answer , but you have used the term ‘advanced learners’ here which is more appropriate. Thanks a lot.
