Word Play

The words we use to communication with one another change all the time, making the English language both fascinating and frustrating. The Web offers dozens of sites that explore words and how we use them. Some are educational, and many are just plain fun. So whether you are looking to build your vocabulary or discover anagrams for "vocabulary," these sites will keep you entertained for hours.

Letter Lore

Etymology is the study of words, and "Take Our Word for It" is a great Web-based etymology magazine. Visitors can ask questions about the origin of words and read interesting feature articles.



Hoping to build your vocabulary? Head to OneLook Dictionary, which simulataneously searches hundred of online dictionaries.

Fun with Words




"Did you know that 'almost' is the longest word in the English language with all of the letters in alphabetical order?"


The Internet offers many sites that keep word lovers occupied for hours (believe us, we know!) Cool Quiz! has a Words and Numbers section filled with useless facts that you will want to send to your friends. Did you know that "almost" is the longest word in the English language with all of the letters in alphabetical order? Another fun site is Travlang's Word of the Day, where you can view a word of the day in more than 50 languages.




Bordering on downright silly, Phonespell lets visitors type in any phone number to determine what words it will spell on a telephone keypad. If you like that, practice your oral English skills with this collection of tongue twisters.
