Wordful is a word
puzzle game in the spirit of Literati, eWords and others.
It is also a great way of learning new words or developing vocabulary in any language or science area. In fact, here is what we think Wordful is:
Although it will surely depend on your definition of fun, we invite you to
give it a try and see for yourself. There is always a way to get challenged.
Hollywood stars, baby names, mountains, states, business terms...there's
something for everyone!
is great for learning languages
Knowledge is best built in games and Wordful is a great way of introducing
yourself to a new language while playing. Equally effective for children and
adults, the game even allows for measuring and tracking your progress! Chose a
word list, play a week and compare results...you
might be surprised!
can be adjusted to your level and topic of interest
Use the various pre-created word lists or create your own ones with the free Wordful
wordlist builder, available in a separate download. (currently only
available for Microsoft Windows)
develops your brain and unconventional thinking
Finding words, figures and patterns is a classic exercise for the brain.
And reading backwards or downside up forces it to work on a totally different gear!
can be both relaxing and useful...maybe not as relaxing as mountain hiking and
not as useful as building marketing strategies...but sometimes that's exactly
what you need, isn't it?
Using external dictionary
for looking up definitions
When playing Wordful you may often see a word that sounds familiar and even mark
it successfully, without still knowing what it means. The game has a neat
feature, allowing automatic copying of the last user entry to the clipboard. You
can then invoke any resident dictionary application such as
BDicty Dictionary Reader
and look up the word definition there.
Downloading additional word
home page will list most current word lists as separate free downloads,
usually organized by language. Other free or commercial word lists may be found
on the most popular Palm software sites on Internet.
You can easily create word lists of your own by using the
wordlist builder available free of charge. See its page and the
documentation in the download for sample word lists.
Once you take the time and effort to build a custom word list, consider sharing
it with others. If you want us to include it in the standard language pack
available at Wordful's home page, email us!
