graphic thesaurus

Word lovers (or those seeking distraction from grading memos) will enjoy watching and manipulating the graphic displays of an online thesaurus, Visuwords. Visuwords is built from Princeton University’s WordNet, an opensource database built by students and language researchers at that school. Visuwords visually graphs and color-codes nouns, verbs, adverbs, and adjectives, as it simultaneously shows the relationships of various forms.
