    Hey Guys
    I was wondering if anybody knows if and how I can add a dictionary for synonyms to the apple dictionary? Are there any good dictionaries out there because I could only find stand alone apps whereas I would like to add solely a dictionary to the Apple Dictionary application.

    Thanks!

    Isn't a thesaurus for looking up synonyms? Mac OS X's Dictionary app has one in it.

    Ohh, I haven't even seen that! Thanks. Though I would be interested if there are other good thesaurus dictionaries out there as the apple one does not show antonyms. I guess I can't export the office 2010 dictionary?

    It does show antonyms. But not a lot of them. Tell is to search for "Smile" and you'll see "ANTONYM: Frown".

    it won't do homonyms, but maybe pseudonyms...
