OneLook Reverse Dictionary

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 so you can add it to your bookmarks the next time you’re tongue tied!
