The Exploding Dictionary


is pretty cool. The
Exploding Dictionary
takes a novel approach to
looking up a word. You can look up a word, and then
every word in the definition is a link to the definiton of
that word.

\"The basic idea was to take a set of
publicly available dictionaries, index them into a SQL
database, and then cross-reference them to near
death. :) As a researcher, this should be a very useful
resource. Hypertext is the researcher\'s dream come
true, allowing for instant jumps to related or unknown
material. The information is provided twice. First it is
displayed \'clean\', then below it is displayed with each
individual word hyperlinked.\"
