What they say
“The Visual Thesaurus is an interactive dictionary and thesaurus which creates word maps that blossom with meanings and branch to related words. Its innovative display encourages exploration and learning. You’ll understand language in a powerful new way.
Say you have a meaning in mind, like happy. The VT helps you find related words, from cheerful to euphoric. The best part is the VT works like your brain, not a paper-bound book. You’ll want to explore just to see what might happen. You’ll discover – and learn – naturally and intuitively. You’ll find the right word, write more descriptively, free associate – and gain a more precise understanding of the English language.
The VT has over 145,000 English words and 115,000 meanings.
Roll over a meaning to see its definition and example sentences that express that meaning.
Meanings are color-coded to indicate parts of speech.”
This is an application produced with the ThinkMap Software Development Kit (see separate entry). VisualThesaurus can be purchased as a stand-alone application (Windows or Mac) or subscribed to as an on-line service.
