Writing Resources

Need a word association generator? These are free and better than your average thesaurus . . .

My favorite of the three is  Visuwordsâ„¢ online graphical dictionary -- “Look up words to find their meanings and associations with other words and concepts. Produce diagrams reminiscent of a neural net. Learn how words associate.”

If you like this post, please share with your writerly friends and/or follow  my blog or  like my Facebook page.

These two also do the trick and are simpler with less visual flare:

Word Association Lookup  -- “The project «Word Associations Network » gives you an opportunity to lookup associations with a given word. Word associations arise in the human's mind when reading or saying a word, or just thinking about the word. In order to retrieve the list of associations to a word, just type in the word in the search panel and press <Enter> key or “Search” button.”

wordassociation.org -- “began as an experiment by simon holliday  at nameless, and has now become the world’s largest database of word associations.”
