If you get strange results, your query may not be quite in the right format. The search box should be a simple word or phrase such as “tiger” or “blue eyes”. A word search to describe “blue-eyed people” is unlikely to yield results. So, if you`re not getting ideal results, check if your search term “term” doesn`t confuse the engine that way. The idea for the descriptive word engine was born when I was developing the related word engine (it`s like a thesaurus, but it gives you a much broader set of related words, not just synonyms). Playing with word vectors and conceptnet`s “HasProperty” API, I had a bit of fun getting the adjectives that commonly describe a word. Eventually, I realized there was a much better way to do it: analyze the books! Below is a list of descriptive words for another word. You can sort descriptive words by uniqueness or frequency using the button above. Sorry if there are any unusual suggestions! The algorithm isn`t perfect, but it does a very good job for most common names.

Here is the list of words that can be used to describe another word: As you`ve probably noticed, the adjectives for “term” are listed above. I hope the list of words generated above to describe the term meets your needs. Hopefully it`s more than just new and some people will find it useful for their writing and brainstorming, but one nice little thing to try is to compare two similar but significantly different names – for example, gender is interesting: “woman” vs. “man” and “boy” vs. “girl.” On a first quick analysis, it seems that fiction writers are at least 4 times more likely to describe women (as opposed to men) using beauty-related terms (in terms of weight, characteristics, and overall attractiveness). In fact, “beautiful” is perhaps the most widely used adjective for women in all of world literature, which is quite consistent with the general one-dimensional representation of women in many other forms of media. If anyone wants to do more research, let me know and I can give you a lot more data (for example, there are about 25000 different entries for “woman” – too many to show here).

Also note that if there are not many or no term adjectives, your search term may have a distant word part.

For example, the word “blue” can be a noun and an adjective. This confuses the engine and so you can`t get many adjectives describing it. I could try to solve this problem in the future. You may also be wondering: What kind of word is ~term~? The blue of the results represents their relative frequency. You can move the mouse pointer over an item for one second and the frequency indicator should appear. The “uniqueness” sort is standard, and thanks to my complicated algorithm™, it classifies it according to the uniqueness of adjectives to that particular noun compared to other nouns (it`s actually quite simple). As you might expect, you can click the “Sort by frequency of use” button to get adjectives by how often they are used for that noun. This tool will help you find adjectives for the things you want to describe. See also ReverseDictionary.org and RelatedWords.org. Here are some adjectives for ~term~:.

It won`t be much longer! 🙂 Special thanks to the contributors of the open source MongoDB used in this project. Project Gutenberg was the original corpus, but the parser became increasingly greedy and I provided it with about 100 gigabytes of text files – mostly fiction, including many contemporary works. The analyzer simply searches for each book and extracts the different descriptions of the names.
