About Writers' Reverse Dictionary

The Writers' Reverse Dictionary is a tool that lets you search for a word by its definition, find rhyming words, and solve crossword puzzles easily. It uses the Datamuse API to search through the definitions of millions of words. If you have any suggestions, please send them my way!

“The Reverse Dictionary” is based on a devilishly clever idea: instead of checking a word to learn what it means, you check a meaning to find its mot juste.
