  • Hello, user132235, and thanks for your interest in English Language & Usage. One of the restrictions on questions at this site is they should not be open-ended, in the sense of soliciting lists of every word that fits a particular category—and unfortunately your question falls precisely into that disapproved area. If you can recast your question to ask for something more specific, please consider doing so. – Sven Yargs Aug 14 '15 at 21:29
  • Thanks for your advice ,how should I make it close-ended?any suggestions. – user132235 Aug 16 '15 at 1:43

I was going to ask you to try a thesaurus, but then I tried a thesaurus, and was quite disappointed. So I will use the other approach, and reach into my head, kind of like free-associating.

  • I found 16 synonyms in the first search for "browse synonym" I tried. And some of these suggestions are peripheral to say the least. 'Bookmark', 'table lamp' and 'reading glasses' might fit OP's (far too broad) request better. – Edwin Ashworth Aug 14 '15 at 11:01
