Finding the Best Word

Finding the Best Word

Language is often contextual—the language you use in a letter to a friend is different from the language you use in business correspondence. To make sure you are using words that best convey your meaning in any given context, you can use Word’s Thesaurus to look up alternative words or synonyms for a selected word. To use the Thesaurus, you select the word that you want to look up, and on the Tools menu, click Language and then Thesaurus. The Research task pane appears, displaying a list of synonyms with equivalent meanings.

In this exercise, you’ll use the Thesaurus to replace one word with another.
