We are experimenting with visual ways in which we can enhance people's engagement with language. By fusing the information we can obtain from corpus searches, concordance outputs, and word clouds we are aiming to enable and encourage people to notice and wander through the words they read, write, and speak.

A first prototype of the WordWanderer can be accessed now. Please take a look and tell us what you think (either via email or by using the 'feedback' form online): http://wordwanderer.org
