Navigate by browsing

If you have already found your way to a word's page, then you can navigate by clicking on any of the other words listed. Here are some starting points:

Cabernet . bright orange . Peugeot . intense . obscenely overpaid . Germans . benzodiazepine . EXPLETIVE . Freddie Mercury . ;) (a smiley)

Example. For this example, look only at "Related by context", not at "Related by string". Click on Cabernet and you'll see red wines, but also (as the 10th word) "chardonnay". The list for chardonnay contains many white wines, but also "sparkling wine". Go on to sparkling wine and you'll find "champagnes" and "Prosecco".

Navigate by prefix

To look up a particular word, click on its initial character below. Then click on its two-character prefix, then on its three-character prefix etc. Click on "(other)" if its prefix is not listed.

Example: "Alcatraz". Click on <A>, then on <Al>, then on <Alc>, then on <Alca>, then on <Alcat>. You are now on the page "Words starting with <Alcat>" and the fifth word from the bottom is Alcatraz.

Here are the most important one-character prefixes. The rest is at the bottom of this page.

. <#> . <$> . <%> . <&> . <'> . <*> . <+> . <,> . <-> . <.> . </> . <0> . <1> . <2> . <3> . <4> . <5> . <6> . <7> . <8> . <9> . <:> . <;> . <=> . <@> . <A> . <B> . <C> . <D> . <E> . <F> . <G> . <H> . <I> . <J> . <K> . <L> . <M> . <N> . <O> . <P> . <Q> . <R> . <S> . <T> . <U> . <V> . <W> . <X> . <Y> . <Z> . <^> . <`> . <a> . <b> . <c> . <d> . <e> . <f> . <g> . <h> . <i> . <j> . <k> . <l> . <m> . <n> . <o> . <p> . <q> . <r> . <s> . <t> . <u> . <v> . <w> . <x> . <y> . <z> . <~>

Navigate by string

So far we have only looked at the second part of a word's page, the "Related by context" part. These are words that have similar contexts.

In the first part of the page, after "Related by string", you will find words that have similar substrings, e.g., words that contain similar constituent words.

Example. Go to Snow Leopard, the Apple operating system. In the "Related by string" section, there are links to the big cat snow leopard, to constitutent words of the phrase "Snow Leopard" such as snow and to phrases that "Snow Leopard" is a constituent of like Snow Leopard compatibility.
