Look it Up

Remember when you looked up "spanking" in the dictionary, and hoped the librarian wouldn't notice your blushes? Sure, we all did it. Now, it's even more fun to do it electronically. (Click on the picture to enlarge it.)

Using Visual Thesaurus, you can look up those tantalizing words and find definitions and similar words, and even hear how to pronounce them. Right-clicking on a dotted line or a coloured dot produces a pop-up definition, and you can use your mouse to rearrange the little diagram any way you like.

Dictionaries were never this much fun!

We should have left our names and phone numbers in the dictionary.

Isn't the cyber world fun! :)

Hermione said...

OBB - That would be an interesting finding.

Sara - I love it!

Very cool. Have to rearrange the diagram for sure though. Don't even think a vanilla would come up with the word "merry" when they hear spanking.

Thanks for the link Hermione, didn't know there was a visual thesaurus.


Hermione said...

Todd & Suzy - A spanko must have had some hand in building it!

Ronnie - I just discovered it, and it's fun!
