A thesaurus is a valuable tool you can reach for to increase your vocabulary and improve your communication skills. However, there are a few tips you should follow if you want to use it effectively. To find what some of them are, read the post below.

How to Use a Thesaurus Correctly

  1. The first tip is learning when to use the thesaurus. As mentioned above, it helps you widen your vocabulary, which means it can be incredibly useful whenever you're writing a school paper. You can employ it when you notice you're overusing a particular word.
  2. Once you realize you need a thesaurus, you will have to search for the word you want to replace it with. How you go about this, however, will depend largely on the type of thesaurus you have (alphabetical, online, Roget-type, etc.).
  3. When looking through the suggestions the thesaurus throws at you, you should consider the message you're trying to transmit. As you know, words change meaning with context, so don't overlook this tip, so you can be in control of what you're communicating.
  4. Last but not least, you should use your thesaurus with caution. This means that you should avoid overusing it to, once again, prevent distorting your message. Likewise, don't take anything for granted: if you don't know the definition of one of the thesaurus' suggestions, search for it in the dictionary.
