Visual Word associations

Just discovered from Adam Pash’s excellent Lifehacker feed this tool for visualizing word meanings. As the Visuwords website says “Look up words to find their meanings and associations with other words and concepts. Produce diagrams reminiscent of a neural net. Learn how words associate.”

Cambridge in Visuword

Here is the visual word map for Cambridge clearly showing the two different Cambridges nodes in the UK and USA but with a nice dotted link identifying both as city urban centres and a seperate link showing the two universities. Pretty cool. (Opera is struggling to bring in the jpg from WordPress)
