Hi,

I've found the built-in dictionary/thesaurus functions in Word 2003 to be both helpful and lacking. They seem great when I want a better word for what I'm thinking, but they don't have definitions, and sometimes the selections seem to be incomplete. Are there any 3rd party products that can plug-in to the Word interface, with perhaps better word variety, usage examples, etc?

For instance, I know there about 2000 different ways to say "said" but I get about 10 when I enter that in the thesaurus. Is there a program that can help me?

Thanks

You should visit Dictionary.com (http://www.dictionary.com) and see what they've got for "said" (http://thesaurus.reference.com/search?q=said)....
