Visual Dictionary Online

| 0 comments

Shahi Visual Dictionary – a free online tool which lets users enter the desired word and it will generate definition texts from the free online multilingual dictionary Wiktionary along with images from Flickr, Google and Yahoo. You can specify from a drop-down next to the text box as to which image search tool you’d prefer as the default tool (though can click on any of the tabs too. Once definitions appear, with examples of the word in contexts, there will be words within these definitions which also lead to further definitions.

Wordnik – a free online dictionary which provides multiple definitions, displays where the word has been used in contexts online, searches Twitter for use of the word and displays the tweets with that word, searches Flickr images, has synonyms, homonymns, a reverse dictionary, and even gives the Scrabble score for the chosen word!
