wordnet & wordnut

Here is a tiny new Emacs major mode for browsing local WordNet lexical database: https://github.com/gromnitsky/wordnut

I was very surprised not to find an abundance of similar modes in the wild.

Its most useful features are:

  • Completions. For example, do M-x wordnut-search RET arc TAB.
  • Pressing Enter in *WordNut* buffer inside any word. In this way you can browse the WordNet db indefinitely.
  • History. Keybindings are very usual: `l' to go back, `r' to go forward.
