A number of very useful tools exist for helping student become better writers.

Software programs:

GoldenDict
http://goldendict.org/download.php

GoldenDict
This is one of the first tools I recommend to all of my students. If English is not your native language, or even if it is, you need this dictionary! I use it almost daily myself when I am writing, translating or reading complex academic texts.

GoldenDict.exe is only the software program for managing a large number of dictionaries that you can install. You will still need to download a range of dictionaries in order to use Goldendict.

To obtain dictionaries for various languages, check out the Goldendict forums and download from the links they provide http://goldendict.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=5&sid=4840d391cb90587fec6a93101e050179

A very good Chinese-English dictionary has been compiled by Simon Wiles along with a number of other dictionaries for Goldendict including an electronic version of the Kangxi dictionary. Find Mr. Wile’s page here: http://simonwiles.net/projects/

 

The Sage, or The Sage’s English Dictionary and Thesaurus
http://www.sequencepublishing.com/thesage.html

thesage_ss_01_lookup

The Sage Dictionary and Thesaurus is another tool extremely useful to anyone regardless if you are a native speaker, ESL student, or an non-native speaker completing a PhD.

The author of this useful tool, Sequence Publishing, describes The Sage as a “knowledge database and a multi-tool interface” that includes:
Dictionary- a comprehensive dictionary with examples, and basic encyclopedia functions
Thesaurus- synonyms, antonyms, hypernyms, hyponyms, meronyms, holonyms
Various Tools- various look-up tools including a very useful one that allows the user to look up words when you can’t remember the exact spelling.

When writing, its good to try to avoid repetition of the same term, phrase or idea. When we have difficulty thinking of an alternative word, consulting a dictionary and thesaurus can provide very good suggestions.  trouble thinking of synonyms, homonyms, antonyms.
