Here's a very cool graphical dictionary which shows word relationships in a node-link type chart.

Quote
Visuwords™ online graphical dictionary — Look up words to find their meanings and associations with other words and concepts. Produce diagrams reminiscent of a neural net. Learn how words associate.

Enter words into the search box to look them up or double-click a node.

    * Its a dictionary! Its a thesaurus!...

For some time I subscribed to http://www.visualthesaurus.com. I found it very useful. This is the first I have become aware of Visuwords. If someone finds one lacking, they may wish to try the other.

I stumbled on this just yesterday, what a fun way of doing things, worth a bump in case people missed it first time i think  :)

Very cool! And it seems the source code is available... I wonder if it could be applied to FreeThesaurus...

Slick! A downloadable app of this would rock. I might use it more than I do TheSage.

This is pretty cool, so I made a FARR alias for it:

1000>>>Visuwords lookup>->Visuwords lookup $$1 | http://www.visuwords.com/?word=$$1>+>^vw (.*)


(if it's not obvious, the alias is triggered by "vw", e.g., "vw mouser" to look up mouser)

It goes crazy if you input "unit."
