This Demonstration groups a selected word with similar words in a web structure. The similar words are found by removing the first letter of and identifying new words with the resulting lookup string. For example, if is "flop", we can get "plop".
The words in each connected component share the same terminal string; for example, "redevelop" and "overdevelop" both end with "evelop".
The "refresh" button generates a new random sample of associated words, and thus a new word web or sometimes a different representation of the same word web.
Use the "word" drop-down menu to choose from the set given or a random word. Each web will have at least four unique word associations.
