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!
