Visual Thesaurus Hopes to Eliminate Writers Block

Replace Meaningless Words

If you write copy, marketing plans or white papers, you know the power of well chosen words. You also know how excruciatingly difficult it can be to come up with those words. A company called ThinkMap feels that pain and has created a thesaurus on steroids.

ThinkMap's Visual Thesaurus uses a graphic interface to animate the English language in a unique way, revealing the meanings, origins, pronunciations and relationships between words. After entering a word it creates a matrix of type, colored dots and floating lines to display the meanings, parts of speech, synonyms, antonyms, and the relationships between 145,000 English words.

Comments

not to be overly critical, because i really like your site ... but thinkmap and their thesaurus is, like, from 100 years ago. seriously, i think it appeared in 1998.

Correction to anon. VT appeared in 2002, so it is not "like" 100 years old; it is actually 3 years old. I'm wondering if anon has a better definition in mind?
