Syntax for calling the API


I want to use Livecode to call the API and therefore I need the syntax of the call to be something like this (replacing XXX with my id and key):

https://od-api.oxforddictionaries.com/api/v2/thesaurus/en/shadow?fields=synonyms/app_id=XXX/app_key=XXX which throws the error Authentication parameters missing.

I guess I`ve got the app_id and app_key syntax wrong in this context.

Could I be advised what the correct syntax would be?

Many thanks,
