    "Finding a word by its definition"

    Hello,

    Is there possible to look up a word when we just have concept about? e.g. I'd like to know what describe the following definition:

    'a very large number of things, probably more than is necessary' just as an example, that's not the point here.

    I find it just once solitary perhaps solution, which I'll describe it in the blog Neugenery.

    Hello and welcome to the forums.

    I have found that you can sometimes find a word by Googling the definition along with "a word which means" but it happens only occasionally. The only online reverse dictionary I can find is: OneLook Reverse Dictionary

    Please give your threads titles which refer to the actual post somehow. "Finding a word by its definition" would have been good.
