Word Source

Word Source is a new online dictionary, that is incredibly easy to use. It’s similar to Dictionary.com but with some obvious and notable differences.

The Dictionary is very easy to use. All you do is type in the word you are looking for in the text box provided or type the word at the end of the Word Source URL itself such as word.sc/sweet. Very simple and very easy.

Word Source is also available straight in your browser with the available plugins. One for IE7 and the other for Firefox. In just one click you can install the plugin and you don’t even need to restart your browser.

If you sign up for a free account you can personalise Word Source, by uploading photos of yourself and telling other users about a specific word, such as the word welcome, currently 48 people like the word, 1 person dislikes it, and the word caused one person to fail an English test.

Click on the little speaker phone next to the word and you can hear it, this is a paid for feature in Dictionary.com. Not sure of a word? Type what you think it starts with in the box and you get a whole list of suggestions.

You can copy and paste the word using the handy, copy and paste feature that puts the word and its definition in a format you desire (text format, phpBB post format, MySpace format and more). There are also game available, Hangman and Jumble where you have to rearrange the letters to get another word.

I also notice that there are no ads on the site (which is a highlight). Though this looks like a feature they may add eventually as it does mention the use of third party advertising companies, in it’s privacy policy.

So try it out, Word Source.
