for fellow lovers of words

January 3, 2008

Thanks to a fellow blogger, I have just discovered the most fabulous website: http://www.visualthesaurus.com. It maps out a word for you, with its various definitions,and is interactive. For starters, I had to look up “grace,” and my favorite of the visual links was the definition for the variations gracefulness and gracility [which, for the record, I must admit that I had no idea even existed, as far as defined words go!]. Anyhow, the definitions for these two are “beautiful carriage” and “elegance and beauty of movement or expression, ” both of which are just lovely . . . a wordy paradise :-)
