You can use the form below to measure the similarity of two words. The order in which you enter the words into the form affects the similarity metric, so reverse the order if you get a result that you did not expect.

When you are interpreting the results of your relationship measurement, remember that "1", is the highest degree of similarity, and "0" is the lowest. If you see a negative value, it means that one or both of the concepts you have entered could not be found in any of our knowledge domains.

(Please see note below)

IMPORTANT NOTE: The only relation used in the taxonomy is an "is - a" correlation that shows that two words are of the same kind. For instance, book and dictionary are similar because a dictionary is a type of book. In contrast, book and author, although obviously related, are judged unrelated by the taxonomy because an author is not a type of book.
