TheSage is a complete dictionary and a multifaceted thesaurus of the English language. It runs locally, and does not use your Internet connection. The program offers a unique structured display, as well as wildcard search, anagram search and more.
TheSage has been designed to be used by language researchers and pedagogues seeking to carry out certain kinds of linguistic analyses. Please read this documentation carefully and contact us if you have any problems.
Despite the complexity of TheSage, using the dictionary is extremely simple. Casual users only need to type a word and press the Enter key. If the word exists, TheSage will display its senses, thesaurus, pronunciation, and other information. If the word does not exist, TheSage will provide suggestions and alternative spellings.
Journalists, translators, etc., might want to know that our approach is that of descriptive linguistics. Therefore, TheSage is not to be used to determine what the 'correct' or 'incorrect' use of the English language is. We are satisfied by describing how English speakers use the language.
