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 2002 comes with a powerful thesaurus—one that is much more effective than the version available with Word 97 and older versions of Word.

To use the thesaurus, right-click on the word for which you want to see synonyms (similar meanings) and choose Synonyms on the shortcut menu (see Figure 9.12). Or select the word and press Shift+F7. Select an option to use in place of the existing word.
