Adding Thesaurus to your application will help users better understand the meaning of words, the context to which they are used or simply find alternative words for their text.
Using synonyms, users can compare words with the same or related meanings and use these suggestions to not only better understand the context of the word but synonyms can also help the user write more descriptive text. An example of a synonym would be 'kind', 'considerate' or 'true', 'factual'.
Antonyms on the other hand are words with contradictory meanings. For example 'cold', 'hot'. Antonyms can also be opposite in their relationship for example 'buy', 'sell' or 'to', 'from'.
