Visual Dictionary Online

Wondering what poultry shears look like? Connect words with images when you use the new Merriam-Webster Visual Dictionary Online. You can search one of fifteen themes such as "society" and "transport and machinery" (or "food and kitchen" for obscure utensils) to quickly locate words and their meaning, along with detailed illustrations. The site also includes audio pronunciations.
While the visual dictionary is geared at all skill levels, this resource may be especially helpful for English language learners.
