OneLook Reverse Dictionary

Onelook.com is a site that helps you find definitions, translations and stuff like that. It also has this tool called Reverse Dictionary, which we find really interesting.


The Reverse dictionary lets you describe a concept and get back a list of words and phrases related to that concept. Your description can be a few words, a sentence, a question, or even just a single word. Just type it into the box above and hit the “Find words” button. In most cases you’ll get back a list of related terms with the best matches shown first.

Here are some ways you can use the Reverse Dictionary.

We particularly like the ability to perform a wildcard search. Also, while searching using wildcards, you can restrict the results to a particular meaning by putting a colon after the pattern followed by a word or two describing what you’re looking for. Example: c*:board game.
