  • Have you tried looking it up in a thesaurus? Also, I'm not sure I follow your reasoning – how does the definition of the word thesaurus beg the question "What is the synonym of the word thesaurus?"? – user3395 Feb 27 '18 at 19:39
  • @eques you are right as I did not find it in Google so I have asked here . – user70421 Feb 27 '18 at 19:50

Using the thesaurus, I found synonyms.

Reference book-a book containing useful facts or specially organized information, as an encyclopedia, dictionary, atlas, yearbook, etc.

Onomasticon- a collection or listing of words especially in a specialized field (as science or commerce)

Lexicon-a wordbook or dictionary, especially of Greek, Latin, or Hebrew.

Language Reference Book


I'm not sure if this question was just supposed to be ironic, or serious. But, this is a serious answer.
