Here is a list of 5 free websites to find synonyms antonyms online. The process of finding words similar or opposite to a particular word is made very simple on these websites.
It may seem prudent to argue that these websites do not seem to be really important, as there are already dictionaries like WordWeb that provide everything, from meaning to synonyms to antonyms. But, there are points on which these websites score better. Firstly, there is no downloading required as they are completely online (well, obviously). Secondly, they save you a lot of time. In a dictionary, you may be able to find synonyms easily, but looking for antonyms can be time-consuming, or also impossible. For both these reasons, using a website to find synonyms antonyms seems to be quite useful.
The 5 websites reviewed in this article are Thesaurus.com, synonym.com, Synonyms Antonyms, Wordhippo, and RhymeZone.
Thesaurus.com is the first website to find synonyms antonyms online. This is obviously one of the most popular website, and I am sure most of you are aware about how it works. But, exceptions are always there, so let me explain the procedure in brief here.
The website has a lot of things to offer. Apart from word meanings, synonyms, antonyms, there is a lot more going on here. There are daily quizzes, word of the day, and many more activities. To stick to the point, there is a search bar given on top. Enter the word in that bar and hit search. The website will list the meaning of the word, its synonyms, antonyms together on one page. There are a lot of filters available as well. Go through them and you are done.
synonym.com is the second website to find synonyms antonyms online. Although the name seems to suggest that you can find only synonyms, but the option to look up antonyms is also available. There are also a few quizzes available that you can take part in.
The interface of the website is very clear, except for a couple of ads. In the center, you will find a search bar where you can enter the word of your choice. Above this search bar, there are 3 options that you can choose from: synonym, antonym, definitions. Depending on the chosen option, the website will deliver the results for the word you entered.
Synonyms Antonyms is the third website reviewed here to find synonyms antonyms online. This website is actually meant for the purpose of helping you to learn synonyms and antonyms for various words. It has a large repository of words that you can look up to. All these words have been mentioned in a list, and you can find the word in this list. There are separate lists for both synonyms and antonyms. In both these lists, words are written in one column and other columns are filled with its synonyms and antonyms.
The interface of this website is really crowded with ads. You will find the option of lists on the left hand corner. Since these lists are lengthy and exhaustive, arrangements have been for you to find appropriate words quickly. Both the lists have been divided into various parts according to alphabets, so that you find it easy to search words. Still, I feel a search bar would have been useful. Try it out from the link above.
Wordhippo is another useful website to find synonyms antonyms online. It has a decent looking interface and a very easy to understand procedure. Finding synonyms or antonyms is really simple on this website. All you have to do is enter the word in the search bar, select the option, and hit the find it button. The options list includes options like synonyms, antonyms, meaning, sentences. Since, the website is not only limited to providing synonyms and antonyms, you will find a whole lot of options in this long list. But, the options with which we are concerned here are given right on top, so you do not have to go through the entire list.
RhymeZone is the final website reviewed here to find synonyms antonyms. This website is very similar to Wordhippo in the way it functions. There is a search bar and an options list. Enter the word in the bar, and choose the option from the list. The list of options is a long one and the options to find synonyms antonyms are on top.
RhymeZone is a little different from Wordhippo in one sense. It provides you filters that you can apply for more appropriate results. You can choose to organize results by syllables, or letters, and choose whether to include phrases in your search or not. Try it out from the link above.
All these website are a good option to search synonyms antonyms online, for free. Try them out and give us your feedback through comments.
