Are you tired of going online just to check the meaning of a word, phrase, or to find a synonym? With WordWeb, you can put an end to it with one of the most complete dictionaries around, on your computer.

Online and offline

WordWeb stands out because it’s one of the few dictionaries that you can install locally on your computer and still be active. With the world having embraced all things internet and the arrival of moviles, there are few programs similar. WordWeb lets you look up meanings and synonyms with just one click, within most Windows programs.

Having said that, WordWeb is a tool that can connect to the web to broaden the results it provides. Its reference sources are the webpage of the University of Princeton and Wikipedia (believe it or not, it’s one of the most comprehensive sites in the world).

The depth of WordWeb

WordWeb offers a fantastic range of linguistic resources:
• 150,000 root words
• 120,000 synonyms
• 5,000 audio pronunciations
• 65,000 phonetics
• Related words
• Definitions and synonyms

WordWeb also has a Pro version that’s even more comprehensive, and offers audio content and a wider range of dictionaries. Perhaps it’s a very specific program for very specific needs, because it’s only in English, but it’s a great resource to have on your computer to consult at any moment.
