Hints and Tips
Enter a descriptive sentence with at least two nouns. Instead of 'he' or 'she,' use an actual name, ideally, someone who is currently looking at the screen with you.
With most word categories, random images appear with each click of the Go button. These images are intentionally unrelated in order to allow your mind to create new connections.
For Problem Solving:
Enter a brief description of your situation. Consider changing verbs and adjectives as much as nouns. You may discover that thinking about a randomly displayed picture, along with your changed situation, can evoke an excellent solution.
Select the Rhyme category. Words that rhyme with the one you have selected will be displayed.
To Create a Word or Name:
Brand new words or names will be crafted to replace the word you have selected. Some will be quite silly, but some may be just what you're looking for.
Enter a phrase or sentence about food, perhaps a recipe, maybe a cooking idea. Select a food noun from your sentence. Select the Food word category. Let the results trigger your culinary imagination.
For All Uses:
Allow for poor grammar. You may need to be patient. Keep clicking Go until you get a result you like. Changing a word here and there from time to time can be useful.
To Go Back:
If you want to revisit an earlier result, click the Log button.
You may find that the Compound Words category offers great food for thought in many situations.
