Today I’m posting a link to another web application (of sorts), this one called Wordnik. Wordnik is a place about words. At Wordnik you can discover meanings of words, spell checks, pronunication assistance and comments can be made on words. You can also get a daily email with a word and definition – a good way to expand your vocabulary. There is a wealth of information available when a word is searched or looked up on Wordnik.
Save the Words is an interesting little site set up by the Oxford Dictionary. It is all about saving words that are no longer used much these days by encouraging members of the site to use them each day. Worth a look – and join as I have to save the English language. The site has a lot more potential and it will be interesting to see if it is developed any further.
