What is it?

It’s a free English visual dictionary and thesaurus that helps you find the meanings of words and show connections among associated words. You can easily see the meaning of each by simply placing the mouse cursor over it.

Underneath GraphWords lays the WordNet - a large lexical database of English. Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms (synsets), each expressing a distinct concept. These meanings and semantic relationships are revealed graphically by the HTML5 canvas made available by GraphWords.

Usage of this tool

After searching for a word, the main display will populate with thesaurus. The word you searched for will appear in the center of the display, and will be surrounded with words and meanings that are related to it.
