Abstract

I have invented a new software product that is a "spreadsheet for words." It treats the word input as a data element and brings back all requested search elements. The user dynamically sets up the columns from a punch list of available matches, such as antonyms, synonyms, foreign languages, prefix, suffix, rhyming, anagram, etc. Floating "definition" boxes and "example of usage" boxes can also be displayed. Favorite screen setups can be specified under user preferences. Clicking on any item brings up further detail about that item or its usage. Please see the mock-up below of the main application screen. WORD Prefix Suffix Foreign Antonym Synonym Rhyming Phrase point atanointtipball (Fr)pointpointedappoint point repoint
