EasyDefine was initially developed by Prabhav with the intention of reducing the time people spend looking up vocabulary words. With this website there is no need
to spend countless hours looking up definitions. All one has to do is copy and paste the word list and all the words will be extracted and defined. Definitions are taken from Princeton's WordNet 3.0

Using this website is very simple. Simply copy and paste
a list of words into the text box. Your list can be in virtually any format
. Our heuristic algorithm will extract the words from the list you give us. For example you may have a list like:
edify, predilection; avant-garde-, paragon,10-membered-
To see the generated list, you can either click the 'generate' button found below your word list, or you can select 'List' from the tabs on the top. Our program will extract "edify", "predilection", "avant-garde", "paragon", and "10-membered" and look them up
If you want to look up a word with 2 or more components such as "computerized axial tomography scanner", simply type in "computerized-axial-tomography-scanner" and we can interpret this appropriately.
After that is done, we offer the list to you in its entirety for download as a word document, for viewing on the website itself, or for emailing to yourself.
Under the 'Extras
' tab, you can look up synonyms
, quiz yourself
, download flashcard
as well as quizzes
Also don't forget about our advanced options
(located under the text box in the home tab) which give you options such as alphabetizing and numbering your list. You can specify the maximum number of definitions for each word and whether or not to randomly pick these definitions from the dictionary (for example picking 2 definitions out of a possible 10).
is our cool new feature that offers a maximum of 2 definitions per word with the click of a button (under the List tab).
