Often times when a writer is scribing a document, they may tend to use the same word over and over again. In order to fix sounding repetitive, the author must constantly look up synonyms for commonly used words. This system detailed herein proposes a GUI mechanism for providing a word lookup and replacement process that more convenient for the author. By allowing an arbitrary synonym to be quickly retrieved at the touch of a hot-key combination from an existing Thesaurus resource, the author is allowed to focus more on their content and less on their form.
