Panlexicon: The Thesaurus cloud

Panlexicon is a tool for writers created by web developers Ben Sheldon and Rebecca White. It makes finding synonyms for words a breeze, instead of giving you a list to look through, like a Thesaurus, you get a Word Cloud where the most general terms appear in big letters and the more specific words in smaller letters. Clicking on a word will add it to your search, and the next cloud is made up of words specific to the ones you have selected.
