A KEY TO GOOD WRITING is using words that add interest and flair. However, remember that you need words appropriate for your audience. If you are addressing a group of grade school children, you’ll use simpler words than if you are writing your college thesis. If you need a little help finding just the right word, try using Word’s thesaurus.

Click anywhere in the word you want replaced and then choose Review > Proofing > Thesaurus. Optionally, press Shift+F7 to launch the thesaurus. A Research pane similar to the one shown in Figure 1 appears on the right side of the screen and displays various meanings of the current word and possible replacements. If you don’t see the exact word you want, click a similar word, which displays its synonyms. Click the Back button to return to the previous word. When you locate the word that best fits your document, click the arrow next to it and choose Insert. Word replaces the current word with your selection.

Click the Research Close button (X) to close the Research pane.
