Discovering Words at Random

Do you enjoy flicking through your dictionaries and learning words you’ve never seen before? Antidote offers an easy, quick way of exploring the treasures of English. Just click on the hat () in the toolbar and Antidote will pull out the definitions of a word at random from its huge stock.

  • Click on the menu next to the hat and you can limit the search to one of the categories displayed. By default, Antidote draws a word from these categories at random.
  • A very recent new entry corresponds to a word that was added for the most recent version of Antidote, whereas a fairly recent new entry corresponds to a word added for the current edition of Antidote.
