Overview
A potent thesaurus and brainstorming tool for writers of all kinds. Find synonyms, related words, adjectives, rhymes, and more!
The OneLook Thesaurus add-on for Google Docs brings the brainstorming power of OneLook and RhymeZone directly to your editing process. As you're writing a document in Google Docs, just select one of the 6 function buttons to find engaging alternatives, admirable adjectives, rapturous rhymes, and more.   

The add-on will use the word under your cursor to make the search. You can override this by selecting a word or multi-word phrase in your document explicitly with your mouse, or by typing a word or phrase into the side panel's search box. Click on a result to replace the word at your cursor (or your selection) with the result.

"Synonyms" shows you synonyms and similar words, as well as links to find definitions and usage examples. Synonyms will be returned first (and highlighted in yellow), but the results go far beyond what you'd find in a traditional thesaurus, giving you many nuanced alternatives that may make for suitable substitutions.   Your search can be a phrase -- more than just a single word -- giving you access to the popular "reverse dictionary" feature of OneLook.

"Triggers" shows you words that are commonly associated with your search.

"Rhymes" shows you rhymes (perfect and approximate). The results that are shaded in dark green are the "perfect" rhymes -- the greener the better.

"Complete" shows you words that start with the letters you've typed so far, which is useful to jog your memory if you only know the beginning of a word.

"Adjectives" shows you adjectives that are commonly used to describe your search word; this works best when your search word is a noun in need of description.

"Nouns" is the reverse; it shows you nouns that are commonly described by your search word; this works best when your search word is an adjective. Together, "Adjectives" and "Nouns" are useful for generating ideas for creative writing.

This thing is pretty great. You don't have to go to a thesaurus and it has more words, and you can find triggers, adjectives, nouns and rhymes. It's great!

This isn't showing up on my Add-ons despite saying that it is installed. I really love this website for my studies, it is a life saver with my brain fog but this extension just isn't working.

The button clicking or highlighting or whatever was the way to use this app doesn't work. Too bad, I had high hopes for this app.

It worked for a while and I found it incredibly useful and convenient! But now none of the buttons work, despite the menu itself coming up on the sidebar. Please fix!
