The Visual Thesaurus

This tool is extraordinary, remarkable, phenomenal, bonzer!

I used the free version so very much that I bought a subscription last year for my sister, who enjoys not only the word maps, but the written columns, community word lists, interviews, and blogs du jour. They even offer a 14-day free trial. I think I'll treat myself to a subscription as well. The online version is inexpensive ($19.95, a bargain!) and in case you have always wanted to know how to correctly pronounce Weltanschauung, you have the option of listening to an American English or a British English accent. Have fun!
