A thesaurus is most commonly known as a book that contains a list of words and their corresponding synonyms. In Microsoft Word, the Thesaurus feature will search for words with similar meanings just like a print thesaurus. In a database, a thesaurus is a list of subject headings or descriptors used by that database to search for relevant information.
