Using the Word Thesaurus

As you write, you may sometimes find yourself getting into a rut—using the same word or phrase repeatedly when another word might make your point more clearly. That's what a thesaurus is for. Word 2000 comes with a significantly enhanced thesaurus—one that you might find much more effective than the version you've used before.

To use the thesaurus, right-click on the word for which you would like to see synonyms (similar meanings), and choose Synonyms on the shortcut menu (see Figure 5.10). Or, select the word and press Shift+F7. Select an option to use in place of the existing word.
