    •Lexical FreeNet
Lexical FreeNet can help you find related words, much like a thesaurus. However, thesauri can usually only find synonyms, and sometimes antonyms. The Lexical FreeNet can also find rhyming words, sound-alike words, anagrams (words that use the same letters), words that are specializations and generalizations (e.g., "truck" is a specialization of "vehicle", "bird" is a generalization of "robin"), and so on. If you have access to the Internet, I encourage you to spend a little time playing with this marvelous resource.
