The older I get, the more I find myself trying to remember a word to describe what I’m trying to say.

I understand conceptually what I’m trying to say, but I just can’t remember the word that properly conveys my thoughts.

That’s where a web resource called the OneLook Reverse Dictionary can come to the rescue.

It let’s you describe a concept and returns a comprehensive list of possible words related to that concept.

For instance, when I type in ‘constant urge to travel’, I get the word I was trying to remember: wanderlust!

You can also be very general with terms like ‘red berries’ or ‘large fish’ to get a wide variety of possibilities.

The next time a word is on the tip of your tongue, see if the OneLook Reverse Dictionary can help you spit it out!

I’ve posted the link at DataDoctors.com/radio so you can add it to your bookmarks the next time you’re tongue tied!
