    Was wondering how difficult it would be to add a thesaurus option to our hubs....we presently have spell check, and I think this would be a great addition to improve our hubs....I guess this would be one for Jason or Paul????

    Yeah, that would be a neat feature. One less window to open!

    I've never met an online thesaurus which was any good even just for UK english.  The current spelling checker is US only so I guess a thesaurus would be US only too -and that would just be too confusing for the rest of us! Check out some of the grammar hubs there are some good ones!

      I thought the UK spoke English...with an accent of course, but still English so what would it matter??????The hubs have to be written in English, so thought it was a good idea....huummmmnnnn.  LOL!

    Well of course we speak English - it's the American's with the dialect problem I mean I actually like your abbreviation of through, it stopped my friend Geoff going to goal  when he was travelling in the USA, though when he ran out of petrol, he did lock his keys in the boot of his car and had to tramp miles along a road with no the footpath to find a telephone booth.  He put on weight too - over-ordering an entree when he wanted a small meal.  :-)

      I get it now,,,,what a dumb ass I am!!!!  I have been to the U.K. I remember they always said for "fu.ks sake, or something like that....I liked it there....except they smoked in nice restaurants...it was some time ago, maybe they don't do that now....oh, and the pubs closed at 11pm...but I think that changed as well.

    Love your post Lissie - are the Americans scratching their heads over some of those words now?
