Mobysaurus thesaurus


You don't even need an Internet connection to use Mobysaurus, an English-language thesaurus of over 30,000 root words, and two and a half million synonyms. Well, you'll need the Internet to download the program, but once completed, it runs offline and can be accessed from within most other software programs by using a designated hotkey. Wildcard searching is permitted, and Mobysaurus will "suggest-as-you-type" and auto-complete. The entire database is cross-referenced, so click one word within a displayed list and you'll be taken to new results. Mobysaurus can also find words that are related through synonymous roots.

If you do have an Internet connection, Mobysaurus can access sites like and to look up definitions and synonyms. Clipboard and print support are included, so you can quickly print your results, even the results of an entire session of searching.

    You will need Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 to run this thesaurus. It’s free.
