Robert L. Bacon recommends Visual Dictionary Online

Robert L. Bacon, who runs The Perfect Write editing service, http://www.theperfectwrite.com/, recommends the Visual Dictionary Online, http://visual.merriam-webster.com/. It looks like a useful resource for writers, editors, and others. I tested it by searching on two words, one after the other: NAVE and SPROCKET. In both cases I eventually saw an illustration showing the items within their contexts. It did take a bit of sorting through the sites, since some seem to be aimed mainly at selling something.
