what are word for?

I like words and their meanings and I like dictionaries.  Therefore here I compile a list of dictionaries to be found online, free ones of course.  OneLook has a very basic interface but searches other dictionaries online,  it can be very useful.  Merriam- Webster has a visual dictionary online, ideal for looking for the word for the thingy on top of the thingy. I also like Shahi that uses Flickr’s images to define words or The Visual Dictionary. Definr and Ninjawords are a super fast dictionaries. The Phrase Finder is where to look when wanted to know the origins and meanings of idiomatic phrases and saying, similarly we have UsingEnglish.com.  For those easily confused we have Confused Words which lists a few thousands words easily confused or misused in the English language. Visuwords gives you a graph with the relationships between words, fascinating stuff as alternative we have Lexipedia.
