A dictionary alternative

Forget flipping back and forth between hard words and confusing dictionary definitions. When you paste in a sentence, paragraph, or more (or enter a web URL), Rewordify.com looks up all the hard words at once and finds easier replacements that make sense. Then, it changes the text and highlights words and phrases in special ways that help you learn more, faster.

It's called Smart Highlighting, and it's a flexible, effective way to build your vocabulary. Some of the styles are shown here. You can change how they work any time you like. See all the options on the Settings page. Read more about it on the Help page.

Different people learn differently. Techniques like analyzing root words and using context clues don't work well for millions of people. The result? No reading. We help break that cycle by helping more people read more—and reading more is the best way to read better.
