Hi everyone,

I thought it might make life easier getting a digital and/or online version of Roget's, but a quick visit to Amazon.com/co.uk has left me unconvinced. There are a lot of bad reviews for the Kindle versions. Does anyone have a digital and/or online version that they're happy with and could recommend?

Thanks.

Lingoes + Roget’s II: The New Thesaurus (free) Aug 15, 2013

Hi Denise,

I spent quite a bit of time looking for a decent digital thesaurus and ended up using Roget’s II: The New Thesaurus and Moby Thesaurus II inside of Lingoes. All for free!



Just download and install Lingoes. Then go here: http://www.lingoes.net/en/dictionary/dict_search.php (enter ‘thesaurus’ in the search box) and download Roget’s II: The New Thesaurus and Moby Thesaurus II (and anything else you fancy) to your desktop. Then click on Dictionaries > Install inside Lingoes to add them to Lingoes. You can also move them up in the search display so you see them first.

Lingoes can be set to automatically search for anything you select from inside any other Windows program! There are also all kinds of other free and paid dictionaries that you can add to Lingoes.

Michael

There are several online thesaures Aug 15, 2013

http://thesaurus.com/ (this is Rogets)
http://www.merriam-webster.com/netdict.htm
http://www.collinsdictionary.com/english-thesaurus

The advantage here is the opportunity to compare and get more suggestions.
I assume there are many more. These are just 3 examples.

Thanks Aug 16, 2013

@ Michael, thanks for the information about Lingoes, I'll have a look at that today.

@Writeaway, thanks for the links - those are the ones I use at the moment. I didn't realise that thesaurus.com was actually Roget's; I thought they were just using the name in a generic way.
