Are there any online searchable synonym lists, i.e. thesauri? I don't mean scanned versions of books, I mean apps or search engines that list synonyms given a specific search word.

I am interested in doing the O Tempora! crossword and having a decent synonym resource seems to be the first step.

Thank you David.

This wonderful site, contains digitized version of regular dictionaries and synonym dictionary. It does not work online though, and you are required to download a viewer for the dictionaries. But if I understand correctly, it answers your requirements as it is searchable and will display the words nicely. see screenshot for one of those synonym dictionaries.
