“Words express what exist and what does not exist”. The Lingua Visual Research website enables the writer to engage with an interactive tool as they type in an electronic writing space - similar to a word processing document. The user is aware of and encouraged to consider their choice of word within the text they are assembling. The interactive listing of the multi-lingual Visual thesauri enables writers to choose and modify no just their choice of words; but the formation of the sentence structure as well: in relation to the usage and application of the English, Dutch and Portuguese language – in relation to each other, as well as in isolation. The application can be seen as a product of revision. They allow the user to reflect on their behaviour, their mannerism, the limitations of their vocabulary and their choice of word & sentence structure. Based on this experience they have the possibility to modify, adjust and improve their writing and content.
