Looking for the perfect word? Check out Thesaurasize, a new FREE resource for teachers, students, and others lovers of the English language. According to the app, thesaurasize is a verb meaning: 1. to look up in a thesaurus 2. to completely ruin an essay by referring to a thesaurus for every other word, thus inserting words that you don’t really understand the definition of to make yourself appear smarter to the reader. I think some teachers may be able to relate to meaning #2. 🙂
