If you love words then you are going to love Wordnik.  Along with definitions provided from four different print dictionaries, Wordnik also provides synonyms and antonyms from Roget’s Thesaurus and examples of the word used in a sentence.  In striving to be the one-stop shop for words, Wordnik brings in pictures from Flickr and Twitter conversations that include the entry word.  If you are really into words you can even start an account to save your favorite words and add to new words to Wordnik’s collection.
