Getting Started 


Wordsift is much more than just a word cloud tool because Wordsift identifies and "sifts" out the most important words in a piece of text.  These words appear larger than the other words in the cloud. Wordsift allows users click on any word in the Wordsift and access the WordNet® visual thesaurus and Google search results.
