Writing Software - Visual Thesaurus

"Inventive. Imaginative. Ingenious. Fanciful." - The New York Times

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 Visual Thesaurus 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.

  • Over 145,000 English words and 115,000 meanings
  • Right-click on any word to launch an Internet search for images or information.
  • Use the Settings Panel to control font size, filter content, display up to 17 semantic relationships and more.
  • The intuitive interface helps you find words through their semantic relationship with other words and meanings.
