Traditional dictionaries and thesauruses have all but fallen out of fashion with the widespread use of the internet. If you need to know the definition of a word, you could just head online and look it up. So why might a software dictionary be useful? In the case of WordWeb you can use the app to look up word definition from within Word and numerous other word processors and take advantage of features such a help with pronunciation and much more.

There are numerous dictionaries in existence and this can mean that there are slight variations in the meaning ascribed to individual words. If you would like to carry out a little analysis and comparison, WordWeb provides you with access to not only its own built in dictionary, but also several other online dictionaries including Wikipedia and Wiktionary.

The program also acts as a thesaurus so you can use it to search for synonyms as well as definitions. If you are conducting research, WordWeb makes it possible to bookmark words so you can access them quickly in future without the need to search again or remember what your train or thought was. As you would expect from any good dictionary, the software does not just provide you with straight definitions of word, but also gives example sentences so you can see how the word is used.

WordWeb is available in both free and paid for version. The two versions are essentially the same, but the free version includes, understandably, fewer definitions and pronunciation guides, and lacks various options such as full text and wildcard searching as well as anagram solving. If you use your computer for any sort of writing, this is a great utility to have to hand, saving you from having to hunt for the dictionary, or wade through countless web sites to find one that might help you.

Verdict:

A great tool for writers that can be used regardless of whether an internet connection is available.
