Nisus Thesaurus is an integrated language reference for writers and editors.

Mac OS X comes with built-in spell checking for many applications, but why stop there? Now you can have an integrated thesaurus as well. With Nisus Thesaurus you get a fast electronic thesaurus that automatically integrates with any service aware application including Nisus Writer Express, Mail, TextEdit, Safari, and more.

Using Thesaurus is easy. Just select the word in your favorite application and choose "Nisus Thesaurus" from the "Services" sub-menu. When you select a word in Nisus Thesaurus, the synonyms for that word will be shown more...

What a neat app! I'm not really a writer, but I AM an old lady who sometimes can't think of the exact word I'm looking for! Really appreciate this developer for coming up with this!

Always one of my favorite helper programs, it's great to see it back.

The price hasn't changed :)

I only wish it was a service under Lion. Still, for the cost, you can't go wrong.

WordNetX and Nisus contain the same data from WordNet online -- if I'm reading the info from Nisus correctly

I happen to find Nisus closer to my needs.

So neither contains the word 'logomachy'

Polished and very useful. I have used it for many months and it feels like a fundamental part of my Mac.

The Readme and the About box both say Nisus Thesaurus makes use of WordNet.

This is the best Dictionary/Thesaurus app on the Mac. Check out additional options as you drill down into a definition.
