My office laptop’s hard drive crashed the other week, and that helped me realize how useful as an office tool wordweb to me really is. I have been yearning for it while it was out of my reach. No, it can’t just be an office tool, it can also be a blogging tool.
The thing is, even the free version of this application is fully utilizable for your office needs.
Gone are the days when you used to flick and fumble through the pages of a large Webster’s dictionary in your library, creeping through the small fonts, recalling the order of the alphabet, looking for that word you have in mind, and just to find out it’s not exactly the word that you needed. You might have even needed a thesaurus if you wanted the similar word/s.
With wordweb, you can simply highlight the specific word in your computer, may it be in your internet browser, word, excel, etc., and press the hotkey, and you have the meanings that you needed. Plus, it will offer you synonyms, antonyms (if any), past-present-past participle tenses as well as plural and singular forms of the word, and it even suggests the nearest word if you have it mispelled in your mind.
What’s more, you can refer to its sound files if you’re not sure about the pronunciation. You can bookmark words whose meaning you keep forgetting.
With about 150,000 root words, you’ll have enough arms at your disposal for your office, business writing, blogging and all around needs. Download the free version.
Note: I have no commercial interest in promoting this tool. I just find this a great utility that I would love to share to my dear readers.
