We’ve all had that moment when we’re talking or writing and the perfect word is right there but you just can’t think of it. You can only come up with similar but not as good words. Before you try Google, check out the OneLook Reverse Dictionary, the dictionary that lets you search by definitions.
Why use this over Google? Well if you’re trying to stay out of the black hole that can be the internet, this is a single site that you can try before stepping foot in the distracting world of a Google search. Especially useful if you’re trying to get something done. This site is an easy no bells or whistles stop. Simply type in a definition and it will look up the word.
Not sure of the definition but can think of a word that’s close but not right? Type that in instead. You can even ask it basic (very basic) questions like the capitol of somewhere how many keys are on a piano. OneLook Reverse Dictionary is a free reference site.
