Do you spend a lot of time searching for the right descriptive word? Do you enjoy the world of synonyms? If so, you’ll want to investigate The Visual Thesaurus. It’s amazing.
A good friend recently gave me the CD edition of Thinkmap’s Virtual Thesaurus, and I use it daily. It’s a dictionary and thesaurus with an intuitive interface that encourages exploration and learning. And I’m a learner. Virtual Thesaurus is also in an online edition.
This program helps improve vocabulary and the understanding of the English language. Most of the people who use it are (according to its website) writers, journalists, PR people, poets and authors, students, teachers, designers, art directors, engineers, mathematicians, and word lovers.
I’d like to add that all people who work in an office and are required to write will find this tool helps them get the right words with amazing speed. And who doesn’t like a time saver?
