Can You Say “Thesaurus”?

Most days I can’t say thesaurus without holding my mouth just right, but at least I know what it is. Fortunately, I can just press a couple keys in Word to bring up the thesaurus when I need to find a synonym—a different word with the same meaning. I don’t often use Word’s thesaurus when writing technical books, but it’s great for finding just the right word for a bit of fiction. I’m sure you’ll have other uses for it, as well.

To look up synonyms, first double-click the word you want to replace to highlight the word. Then press Shift+F7. Word opens a Research pane (shown in Figure 13.6) that offers suggested synonyms.
