Graph Words - An Instant Visual Thesaurus

Graph Words is a neat little site that provides webs of related words. If you're like me and you tend to use the word "awesome" a lot and want to mix it up, type "awesome" into Graph Words to see a web of alternative word choices. Click on any word in the web to generate a new web of more related words. Give it a try with this web based on the word "awful." Your webs can be downloaded as a PNG image.

Applications for Education
Using Graph Words could be a nice way for students who are stuck in a rut using the same words receptively to find new words to work into their writings and conversations.
