The name "Roget" is trademarked in parts of the world, such as the United Kingdom. By itself, it is not protected in the United States of America, where use of the name "Roget" in the title of a thesaurus does not necessarily indicate any relationship to Dr. Roget; it has come to be seen as a generic thesaurus name, like "Webster" for dictionaries.

    I use this almost daily.

    I was looking for a thesaurus app for my nook, that did not use WIFI. Sadly there are none. I feel really silly, I didn't even think about just buying an ebook thesaurus. Here I am going back and forth between my nook and my good old paperback thesaurus I've been using since college. I love having this on my nook! Saves me so much time. I really like it on my comuputer too, for when I write.

    FYI- The sample version has more than 400 pages, if you don't want to pay the 5 bucks, its going to cover almost everything.
