Web Of Words

Aug 18, 2007
When our age was identified as the "information age" people thought that meant the ability to use computers and data would be the power that ran the world. In some ways that's true. However, it's more than data mines and software development that makes our economic world turn on its axis.

The foundation of our information age isn't bytes, it's words. Words are the building blocks of our ability to manage information and comprehend its meaning. The right words in the right place at the right time make all the difference. For people on the web wanting tools to use words more effectively there are a host of vocabulary options.

Say It Again, Sam

We are taught in English classes that organization is key to writing well. Tell people what you are going to say, say it, and then tell them what you said. However in the process of all that helpful repetition, using synonyms is a requirement. Fortunately you don't have to know 10 different ways to say every word in the dictionary. In fact, you don't even have to know the dictionary. Whether writing content of your website or offering a tool to web users, there are web tools that provide online dictionaries, thesauruses, and other language tools to give synonyms and antonyms and meanings to the word you are looking for. These tools help writers, planners and bloggers not just mean what they say, but more accurately say what they mean.

What's a Six Letter World for Puzzle?

Enigma. Puzzles are gaining in popularity across the country as scientists continue to discover the link between critical thinking and the prevention of Alzheimer's disease. In short, the message from researchers is that a puzzle a day keeps dementia at bay. But even the best puzzle solver and game player needs help now and then. Popular web tools available are both puzzle makers, where you can type in the words you want to be in a puzzle and the puzzle will appear, and puzzle solvers. Crossword puzzle solvers allow you to type in the number of letters in a word, and the placement of letters you already know and give you a list of possibilities. While some folks may think this is cheating, it certainly helps you help your brain grow stronger.

En Espanol?

Our information age has also led us to be part of a global economy. There are times when communicating in your own language exclusively isn't good enough, and you don't have time to learn a new one. Language translators are a fantastic web tool to help you do everything from woo a prospective date in French or understand the commentary from a soccer website in Spanish.

Users should be aware no translation is without flaws and the while computer uses the very best of textual language programs some things will just never sound the same. However, for understanding and getting across simple points, web linguistic translators are a great help.

It's a world of words out there. Use these web tools to manage it.
