The Phrontistery


Everyone has access to a dictionary for finding single words, or a thesaurus for finding synonyms. But what if you want to know a whole lot of words that relate to a single theme or that have the same ending? The pages below are topical word-lists or glossaries relating to individual subjects of interest. Note that I'm an expert on words, not any of the individual subjects below, so if you want to know more about some philosophical worldview or type of fabric, I'm not your guy. Also, note that the definitions on these pages are derived from those in major dictionaries like the Oxford English Dictionary and the Chambers Dictionary, rather than directly from experts in the subjects, so corrections and additions are welcome. Some of these lists are extremely complete, while others have just been collected haphazardly and I make no guarantee that they are systematic. I also keep a running list of ideas for new glossaries that I might write in the future. If you have ideas for new lists, or corrections to any of the lists below, please feel free to contact me; I welcome submissions and comments.

I hope you have found this site to be useful. If you have any corrections, additions, or comments, please contact me. Please note that I am not able to respond to all requests. Please consult a major dictionary before e-mailing your query. All material on this page © 1996-2014 Stephen Chrisomalis. Links to this page may be made without permission.
