May I Have a Word Please?
July 23, 2010
Have you ever wondered what word would replace like or cool in a conversation with a teenager? Do you just plain love words? Are you studying for the ACT, GRE or want to improve your vocabulary? Want to participate in the Spelling Bee or win at Scrabble?
Our Visual Thesaurus database is chock full of ideas, and articles designed to improve your use of the English language. For example, one article entitled Mad Men: Capturing the Sound of the '60's tells how the creators of Mad Men strive for linguistic authenticity, and when they fail. Read a blog excerpt on the Future of Electronic Reading. Get word lists from literature, plays, and the Declaration of Independence.
My personal favorite is the Spelling Bee. You can compete against yourself or other people. I'll look for you there!
