Since Desktop Thesaurus recognises over 17,000 keywords and has around 200,000 synonyms and antonyms from which to choose, the chances are that the selection of alternative words offered will include the very word that was hovering just beyond your grasp. Full documentation is available from the Thesaurus help menu. Note that the Thesaurus cannot be used unless Ovation Pro is registered.
