Today’s story prompt reminds me of a very British, stylish spy or assassin, who’d later complain about the inferior quality tea he had to endure because the victim’s taste buds were clearly not as refined as his own. How about you?
Now, don’t get me wrong. A decent dictionary and thesaurus are a must (personally, I use the Oxford editions) but sometimes when writing a paper – or even your thesis/dissertation – you can get stuck.
It happens to me frequently, as I think in two languages at once and every now and then, my brain freezes and I can’t think of the word in either language. So I paraphrase, or describe what I want to say.
This website lets you do just that but then also gives you the word instead of leaving you with an awkwardly paraphrased sentence.
