Today, when I was writing an article, I suddenly stuck. I wanted a word that can describe "a man who asks a question". At that time my mind had stopped working and I thought of words like "asker" or "questioner". Pretty funny!. But that is how it is. More often than not, it happens to me and I forget specific words. I don't know about others but it is quite common to me.

So after I thought these funny words, I thought why not try to find something on the internet that can help me with this. An indirect way would be to write the definition of the word, in this case "a man who asks question" and search for it in the google. Somewhere in the results, there must be a page of a dictionary website containing this line. But believe me this approach is as hard as hell. Sometimes you would have to go till the 5th or 6th page of the search results to get what you are looking for. That is why I have started the hunt for a service that is opposite of a dictionary service. That is instead of defining a word, it should provide a word for specific definition. In my case, it should provide what we call a person who asks a question or who has asked the question.

Does anyone know about such a service? Or any other way of getting specific words for such definitions.

What you are looking for is a reverse dictionary. I have used these a while ago and they seem pretty reliable, the first one I used more than the latter:Now that I think of it, more often than not I am looking for words to describe what I am thinking of :P

I tried the first one and I liked it. The funny thing is that the words which I thought would be wrong and for which I laughed at myself, were actually appearing on the top of the list when I performed the search on onelook. So, a man who asks a question is asker, as well as questioner. These are correct words and I should be proud for thinking about those. :rolleyes:
