WordWeb is a comprehensive one-click English thesaurus and dictionary for Windows. It can be used to look up words from almost any program, showing definitions, synonyms and related words. It includes pronunciations and usage examples, and has helpful spelling and sounds-like links.
Wordweb is a feature-rich software that does much more than a paper dictionary or thesaurus. WordWeb is truly a Word Web – each set of synonyms is linked to other related sets. Look up “tree”, click on the “Types” tab and you’ll have a list of different types of tree. Click on “Part of” and WordWeb will tell you that a tree can be part of a “forest” or “wood”.
In addition to all the free version features, the full Pro version includes 5000 more definitions and numerous extra features including:
- 70 000 audio pronunciations
- Custom web references
- Custom glossaries
- Optional third-party dictionaries
- Wildcard word search
