GraphWords.com – Online Visual Thesaurus
What would a visual thesaurus look like? Would it be more usable than a “traditional” one, or would it be merely a gimmicky resource of which you’ll get tired pretty quickly? Would it make people who write for a living more productive? All these answers (and more) are answered by this new website. GraphWords is a website that basically lets people have words placed in a visual map. There, all their possible connotations and ramifications can be quickly realized.
Using this site involves little more than supplying the word one wants to have analyzed and clicking on the “Draw” button for all the other words that are connected with it to begin being plotted. You’ll be able to see the exact meaning of each new word that is produced just by placing the mouse cursor over it.
And a “Save as Image” button is also provided for you to store any interesting discovery that you make, and have it both shared and printed that more easily afterwards. Teachers that want to enliven the classroom experience will surely love that.
