VocabGrabber

I follow VisualThesaurus on Twitter and just saw a tweet about their new tool – VocabGrabber. It looks very good!

VocabGrabber analyzes any text you’re interested in, generating lists of the most useful vocabulary words and showing you how those words are used in context. Just copy text from a document and paste it into the box, and then click on the “Grab Vocabulary!” button. VocabGrabber will automatically create a list of vocabulary from your text, which you can then sort, filter, and save.”

When you combine it with the Visual Thesaurus, it’s pretty impressive!
