Most people know that lawyers basically make our livings with words. And sometimes we need a little help so that we don’t keep using the same word too often in a brief or a jury argument. That’s when our old friend the thesaurus comes in handy.
One good online thesaurus site is Thesaurus.net. From the site:
The Thesaurus.net project started in 2011 as an online dictionary of synonyms. During the past several years, our team has constantly improved and increased the quantity and quality of the content, adding more synonyms and also providing new data layers, such as antonyms, rhymes, pronunciation, usage examples, definitions, quotes, and idioms for different words. We base our work both on contemporary data sources and on classic dictionaries which are now included in the public domain.
Our efforts were rewarded with great appreciation from our website audience, which resulted in an increase in the number of monthly page views from 4,000 at the beginning of 2011 to more than 1,000,000 by the end of 2014.
Our mission is to provide the most comprehensive, useful and user friendly online dictionary. We keep working on adding new awesome features and new useful data to help people with their research.
