If you know of any useful websites or perhaps run one yourself, feel free to recommend it. If I find your site suitable for my weekly feature then I will do my utmost to accommodate it. In return I might merely ask that you link to my blog. But please (and I mean this in the politest possible terms) do not ask me to advertise your commercial service.
I love this site. It is basically a website dedicated to words, the more unusual the better. It opens with a list of words dropping from the top of the screen. Click on one and it’ll take you to a page with the definition and its use in context. At the bottom of the page is a selection of related words, which lists it appears in and any comments on the words.
The “lists” are created by members of the site. For example the one that brought me to the site was “Words to Try to Use in Colloquial Speech Without Sounding Like a Pretentious Ass”.
There is also a word of the day feature. Scrolling down the list I’m amused to see that 12th November’s is aibohphobia, meaning a fear of palindromes.
