Perhaps you cannot think of the precise word you want or you have already used a word too many times and you need a synonym. In these situations, you need a thesaurus to help you find a suitable word. Roget’s Thesaurus is an authoritative thesaurus that publishers update regularly so it stays current. The latest edition of Roget’s Thesaurus is available for free use online.
