OK, I admit, I am a HORRIBLE speller! Thank Goodness for the Mac Dictionary and Thesaurus, located on the Applications menu, or on the Launchpad.
Mac OSX comes with:
- The entire New Oxford American Dictionary
- The complete Oxford American Writer’s Thesaurus
- A dictionary of Apple Terms
- A Japanese dictionary, Thesaurus, and Japanese-to-English translation dictionary (Turn it on in the Dictionary Preferences)
I especially LOVE the Mac Thesaurus. When writing blog posts or website copy, I like sprinkling original words and phrases into my sentences, expressing myself in a demiurgic way.
Do you like to play with words? Can you inspired your website copy with unique words? Acquire philology pleasure with the Mac Dictionary and Thesaurus.
