This week: A Search Engine for Words
“Think of this web site as a search engine for words and phrases: If you have a word for which you’d like a definition or translation, we’ll quickly shuttle you to the web-based dictionaries that define or translate that word. If you don’t know how to spell the word, we’ll help you do that too. No word is too obscure: More than 5 million words in more than 900 online dictionaries are indexed by the OneLook® search engine. “
OneLook even has a reverse dictionary, where you can type in synonyms or concepts and get lists of related words to choose from.
