as in transition words or what?

what is your topic?

thesaurus’ are usually good, especially to keep from repeating words. there are many online thesaurus’ (best is thesaurus.com) and there is also one is microsoft word and i think open office word as well. just be sure that you are using a synonym for the correct context of the word.

ex: if you wanted a synonym for cleave (means both put together and pull apart), and you wanted a synonym for the “put together” context, you don’t want to accidentally use disentangle.

An easier way than an online thesaurus is if you use Microsoft word, highlight a word and left click. Click on thesaurus.

So much quicker

randomly pick words in your essay, type in the word on http://thesaurus.reference.com/ and pick a better word from the list, and REPLACE the word<3
