I haven\'t explored this much, but it looks very interesting: a visual thesaurus. In the company\'s own words:



\"An experiment in language and interface, Plumb Design\'s Visual Thesaurus is both an artistic exploration and a tool to explore, study, and analyze the structure of language. By displaying the interrelationships between words and meanings as spatial maps, the Visual Thesaurus translates language into a visible architecture.\"



It uses data from Wordnet, so it\'s pretty reliable.

This site/software offers unlimited possibilities, I suppose. I\'ve already added it to my \"Favorites\" and will explore it further. Thank you for the hint.
