artha

Handy off-line thesaurus based on WordNet

Description:

Artha is a off-line English thesaurus with distinct features like:
* hot-key press word look-up (select text on any window and press
a preset hot-key for look-up)
* regular expressions based search (broaden search using wild-cards
like *, ?, etc.)
* passive desktop notifications (of word definitions for
uninterrupted work-flow)
* spelling suggestions (when the exact spelling is vague/not known)
Once launched, it monitors for a preset hot-key combination. When some text is selected on any window and the hot-key is pressed, it pops-up with the word looked-up. Should the user prefer passive notifications, this can be done by enabling the notifications option.

When the term looked for is vague/not known, then either the search can be broadened with the use of regular expressions (*, ?, etc.) in the search string or spelling suggestions when a term is incorrect.

For regular expressions based search to work, wordnet-sense-index package is required.

5 Artha is one of those essential utility desktop apps that I rely on. I wish it could be included in the Mint default apps.

2 The hot-key feature works whenever it feels like it in Mint 18.2...

4 The function that will define words when the hot key is pressed is so impressive. If only it had a pronunciation function it wpuld fave been perfect.

4 Best dictionary and thesaurus in my opinion for linux, easy to use but is missing word prenouncation that would make it excellent.

5 The best thing about it is you can have it start at startup and then whenever you meet a word you don't know, just select it - in any application, and press the hotkey combination (Control + Alt + W by default) - and you get an adequate definition.

5 Very good! Has a tray icon and runs in the background. You can highlight any word in any program, hit the hot key, and up comes the definiton (along with synonyms, derivatives, and much more).
