Thought on Microsoft Word Thesaurus

Microsoft Word SUCKS at providing a decent word Thesaurus. It works “well” for words such as “such as”, “however”, and the likes of these that everyone uses, but when you try to push it a little bit further, as in synonyms for “broad” the results are hilarious: “minor road”, “lane”, “side road”. Other words such as “unravel” present synonyms just for a tenth of their meanings: “tattered”, “worn”, “ragged”. What about “explained”, “discovered”?

Thanks to Mr. Google I found another Thesaurus, online, which provides a MUCH better service: http://www.thesaurus.com

Oh, and it’s free!

If you have to write something or are just looking for another word for that idea, just use this site…
