January 18th Thesaurus Day

Roget’s Thesaurus is the most popular thesaurus in history… in fact for years it was the only thesaurus there was. Roget was born in 1778 and it was an important piece of work as it gave meaning to words people had no idea what they meant… they were similar to other meanings but with different words giving one options instead of using the same old words over and over again!They are called synonyms and are fun to use. (Yes I’m stretching it a bit here)

How to celebrate – Find your thesaurus. (You probably haven’t used it in years) Create your own synonyms. Just use the words you already know.
