Worknik - толковый словарик

What is Wordnik?
Wordnik is a new way to discover meaning. This page will give you a quick overview of what you can do, learn, and share with Wordnik.
Definitions
Wordnik shows definitions from multiple sources, so you can see as many different takes on a word's meaning as possible. For more information about the sources of our dictionary definitions, please see the Colophon page.
Wordnik doesn't yet allow user-contributed definitions. If you'd like to add a definition, you can log in and leave a comment.
Examples
At Wordnik, we believe that words mean what we want them to mean. We try to show as many real examples as possible for each word. These examples are ranked by how useful we think they are in helping you understand the meaning of a particular word, especially words that may not have traditional dictionary definitions.
Wordnik includes example sentences from major news media (such as the Wall Street Journal and USA Today) and from books from Project Gutenberg and the Internet Archive, as well as from other sources across the web, including blogs.
Related Words
What do we mean by “related words”? Our word relationships include synonyms, hypernyms, hyponyms, words used in the same context, a reverse dictionary, and tags. But what does all of that mean?
First up are synonyms, or words with the same or similar meaning, for instance, timber and sapling.
You'll also find hypernyms, otherwise known as superordinates, or words that are more generic or abstract than the given word. The prefix hyper- means "over, beyond, overmuch, above measure," so you can think of a hypernym as a sort of umbrella over more specific words. A hypernym for tree might be flora.
Hyponyms, or subordinates, are words that are more specific than the given word (the prefix hypo- means “under, beneath”). Simal, coralwood, kingwood, and willow are specific types of trees (hey, that would make a great list!).
Same context refers to words that might be used in a similar context, such as wood, grass, garden, and branch. (One could argue that branch is also a meronym, or "a term that names part of a larger whole," for tree.) We use the great resource WordNet for much of our hyponym and hypernym data.
The Reverse Dictionary section lists words that contain the given word in their definition.
Tags are created by logged-in Wordniks. Tags are anything you might use to label the given word (for instance, tree is tagged plant), and the Tagging section shows what words have been given the tag tree, including acacia, ash, and alder.
Lists
There are more than 30,000 lists on Wordnik! Any logged-in Wordnik can make one (or more, or many, many more) lists. Many words on Wordnik are included in multiple lists.
Images
All our images come from Flickr, under a Creative Commons license. We pull images via the tags and text that the creators of the images assigned to it, which means that some images may be only loosely or metaphorically connected to the word being looked up.

About ExamTime

Our aim is simple; we want to change the way you learn. Maybe you’re happy with the way you learn, it’s just that we feel there are ways we can help you engage in your study, get a better depth of understanding and enhance your learning experience!

We’ve done exams too, lots of them – in fact our development team is full of Phd’s (we always have a doctor on call!) – and the thing is, the more exams you sit the better you get.

Over time we figured out how to be smarter at studying for exams. So we’ve gathered all the lessons we’ve learned over the years and built tools to help you study smarter too.

How ExamTime can Improve Learning

ExamTime is changing the way students learn by providing free study tools for students and teachers. ExamTime has been developed to help students make studying more than just a mind exercise. It can be a “do” activity.

Learning is a lifelong endeavour. Students need to take responsibility for your learning. Through our platform, ExamTime empowers students to build best practices into their study habits – goal setting, personal learning styles, comprehension techniques, brainstorming, practice & testing and collaborative learning.

Students and teachers all around the world are creating Mind Maps, Flashcards, Notes and Quizzes using ExamTime. The intuitive and easy to use tools in ExamTime allow users to create, discover and share study resources that can engage, inspire and endure. Plus, ExamTime is allowing teachers the freedom to easily form learning groups to share resources and conduct discussions.

When you are engaged in learning you are engaged in a development process requiring different tools. What we are focused on is building the right tools to enable you to get through the learning process. That’s why we call ExamTime a Personal Learning Environment (PLE).

George Orwell - Politics and the English Language

George Orwell

Politics and the English Language

Most people who bother with the matter at all would admit that the English language is in a bad way, but it is generally assumed that we cannot by conscious action do anything about it. Our civilization is decadent and our language — so the argument runs — must inevitably share in the general collapse. It follows that any struggle against the abuse of language is a sentimental archaism, like preferring candles to electric light or hansom cabs to aeroplanes. Underneath this lies the half-conscious belief that language is a natural growth and not an instrument which we shape for our own purposes.
Now, it is clear that the decline of a language...
