Answers.com Offers Random House Word Menu Online

Answers.com announced its offering of an exclusive English language tool—access to the Random House Word Menu—helping people find the exact word at a moment's notice. Word Menu, created by the late esteemed lexicographer, Stephen Glazier, is the ultimate writer's reference source: a reverse-dictionary, thesaurus, almanac, and collection of glossaries divided into logical categories to help users find the word they need. Word Menu was originally published in 1992 but has never been available on the web until now.

Answers.com’s Word Menu is the perfect tool for editors, journalists, writers, and teachers. As a creativity tool, the interplay of word associations helps users brainstorm a topic, conduct preliminary research, or simply overcome creative blocks and lapses in memory when looking for a specific word.

In related news, the company recently added Collins Bradford's Crossword Solver's Dictionary to Answers.com. The result of more than 50 years of analysis of some 300,000 crossword clues, this dictionary ranges from plain quick crosswords requiring only synonyms, to the much more difficult puzzles requiring a pun or other play on words. To browse Answers.com’s Crossword Solutions, visit http://www.answers.com/library/Crossword+Solutions.

Answers Corp. owns and operates Answers.com. Answers.com is a community-generated social knowledge Q&A platform, leveraging wiki-based technologies. Through the contributions of its large and growing community, answers are improved and updated over time. Answers.com also includes content on millions of topics from more than 250 licensed dictionaries and encyclopedias from leading publishers, including Houghton Mifflin, Barron’s, and Encyclopaedia Britannica.
