Dictionary Vs. Thesaurus

Posted 12:12 by Sailaja Prakash in Labels:


A dictionary tells you what a word means. It gives you a "definition" for each word. When you want to know what a word means, you look in a dictionary.

A dictionary lists definitions or meanings.


A thesaurus gives you words that mean the same as, or nearly the same as, another word. When you can't find the exact word you want, you look in a thesaurus.

A thesaurus lists synonyms and similar words.

The plural of "thesaurus" is "thesauri" or "thesauruses".

Well, you have a blog on Vocabulary and "Grammer", you might want to add one on spelling.

Yes, you spelt "Grammer" wrong. It's GRAMMAR
