Wordhippo vocabulary

 

(images source: wordhippo)

It is really easy to use. Just key in what you are looking for and choose the appropriate category. WordHippo will spit out the results, as well as give one-click links to other data for the word. Quick, simple and worth bookmarking for future reference.

Wordhippo vocabulary is a webpage that makes it easy for you to take your vocabulary study to the next level. 

The difference with any other dictionary is that WordHippo tells you the meaning and has helpful vocabulary resources: synonyms, antonyms, word meaning (with example sentences), pronunciation, and rhyming words. Just type in a word in the top search bar of the website and select which resource you want to use. There is also a word form generator that will list all the different forms of a word, such as the plural form, the noun form, the verb form, and even different tenses for verbs.

Word Hippo is most useful for English words, but some resource sections have other languages such as French and German. These sections will have translation and conjugation resources for the foreign language. All of these word resource tools complement each other to give the website user a greater understanding of vocabulary.
