    I am in process of building yet another website and a nifty idea came across my mind, especially for Web Authors.

    What if there was a widget for a dictionary and/or thesaurus in the editor mode. This would assist the writer in adding interesting verbal excitement to the article and perhaps a more niche keyword enhancement for Kontera, etc.

    Since HP has teamed up with Widgetbox, am almost certain they have a Cambridge unabridged dictionary widget or perhaps (although I don't know how accurate it is, a Babylon widget).

    I see it as something that calls back the word, definition and synonyms, antonyms, yada yada. Am looking into possibilities for my new site, and will post any links etc.

    Just An Idea.
    Cheers,

    James.

      Sounds like a very good idea- everyone from time to time keeps using the same word throughout their hub so a thesaurus is a brilliant idea. Good luck with the site.

    That's a good idea, isn't it possible for you to create your own widget at Widgetbox? I know they have updated their platform with more features, would be a great addition.

      Hey Ross. Yes, I am creating one for my food website, through Widget-Box, but also looking into this Virtual Thesaurus, especially for the map relevance. This way, authors can see variations of a particular word, which they could integrate into their articles, increasing engine pick-up and especially reading intrigue.
