Tip-Of-The-Tongue Syndrome

VQ Staff - Thursday, June 16, 2016

So you're writing, editing, or talking and you can think of the definition of the word you want to use, but you can't think of the actual word... what do you do?

This phenomenon is called Tip-Of-The-Tongue Syndrome and it happens to everyone at one point or another. Precise writing is critical, and using many words to describe something that can be summed up in one word can make your writing less confusing and more engaging!

The OneLook Thesaurus has a Reverse Dictionary feature that "lets you describe a concept and get back a list of words and phrases related to that concept. Your description can be anything at all: a single word, a few words, or even a whole sentence."

 Here's a peek at the depth you can go into to find the word you're looking for!

With this reverse dictionary, your Tip-Of-The-Tongue Syndrome can be cured and you can be well on your way to continue writing without the delay of thinking of the word you're having trouble thinking of!
