I stumbled across this site the other day (literally, I think I saw it on StumbleUpon), Wordnik – a dictionary for the new generation. This super simple site allows you to search any word and shows search results that include far more than just the dictionary definition but also image results, usage associations, audio pronunciations and much more. Plus the home page is a rather ingenious rainfall effect of random words. Just click on one and it takes you to the page for that word. A very clever design idea. Clearly this site is a word-nerd’s paradise, or just a really handy resource for anyone who needs to write anything.
