Thesaurus Day is celebrated on January 18th each year. This day is intended to celebrate thesauruses, which are books that supply synonyms and antonyms. If you’re trying to write a speech or a work presentation, a thesaurus can be a useful tool. Making sure you don’t overuse the same words is essential if you want your writing to flow—and a thesaurus makes that easy.

The first time a thesaurus was officially developed was in 1852 by Peter Mark Roget. Roget was an expert list-maker, and he developed the first thesaurus manually by creating lists of synonyms for various words. After Roget’s death, his son continued to expand the thesaurus.
