Click on a meaning to show alternative words and phrases for that meaning of the word. For example, when given the word “house", the thesaurus offers several meanings, including “dwelling", “legislature", and “sign of the zodiac". If you click on “dwelling", you will see “dwelling", “home", “domicile", “abode", and other alternatives, as shown below.
