It's not the wrong word, exactly.
But it's not the right word either. Not really.
Words are your tools.
A painter doesn't use a roller for corner; nor a 1/2" brush for a wall.
(yes, painting metaphors again)
Two essential tools for you:
Notice they are books, not electrons.
I'm a firm believer in actual physical copies of these resources.
I like thumbing through the pages of the dictionary to find the word I'm looking up.
Inevitably, there's a word I wasn't looking for that catches my eye (this is why I mourn the death of card catalogs at the library too)
And the Thesaurus in print gives much more information than the Thesaurus that's part of my word processing program. It's a much more versatile tool.
I open these at least three times a day.
You don't know how valuable these print versions are till you start using them.
Your preferences may vary; that doesn't make you wrong.
But I suggest try it before you say "I know what I like" cause I didn't know how much I loved grits till I went to Texas where folks know how to make 'em for real.
