Chapter 5. Using the Writing Tools > Looking Up Words in the Thesaurus

Looking Up Words in the Thesaurus

A thesaurus helps you find the right words to express your thoughts. Some thoughts and ideas are more complex than others, and most ideas can be expressed in a number of ways. Using the right words enables you to convey exactly the message you want to get across to the reader.

WordPerfect’s Thesaurus looks up synonyms (that is, words with similar meanings), antonyms, and related words. You can start the Thesaurus from a blank screen, but if you click on a word first, the Thesaurus looks up that word. Choose Tools, Thesaurus, press Alt+F1, or, if you already have the writing tools dialog box open, click the Thesaurus tab. The Thesaurus looks up the word and, by default, displays a list of synonyms, and if available, a list of antonyms and related words (see Figure 5.14).
