WordWeb is one cool and easy way to dig out meaning of words that sound unfamiliar. This lite utility can dish out definition, synonyms, antonyms and related wordsÃ‚ to any word without the need of going online.
The database has more than 150,000 root words and 120,000 synonym sets, many proper nouns, pronunciations, andÂ usage tags. WordWeb works off line, but when online you can also quickly view web references such as the Wikipedia encyclopedia
Best part, this cool utility is all free for download and use. It can make sense of many words, being an offline version and small in archietecture – it can fumble on few complex words.
