Language tools from Palmetto Bay
Palmetto Bay Wordmaster
We're pleased to announce that an offline version of the
rhyming dictionary is now available for Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.0.
Wordmaster includes all of the functionality of this Web
tool, but you can run it directly from your home computer without being
logged into the Internet. Wordmaster extends the
features of the rhyming dictionary by adding
spelling and semantic (synonym) queries, making it an
ideal general-purpose lexical search tool.
Not only is it far quicker and less cumbersome than
physical dictionaries and existing commercial rhymers, it's
more powerful, too. For example, you can have the output list
for your query sorted based on how near each word
is in meaning to a given reference word. Or
constrain the list to match a certain spelling pattern.
Whether you're creating documents in your favorite word
processor or writing lyrics in a music composition program,
Wordmaster stays ready unobtrusively in the background, consuming little
memory even during searches.
The shareware version of Wordmaster includes a 33,000
word dictionary; registration will allow you to access
over 110,000 words. If you're interested in ordering
this program, please visit the registration page.

Logic games from Palmetto Bay
Our award-winning logic puzzles all require the kind of
careful forethought, creative problem-solving, and spatial
reasoning skills rarely exercised in playing today's typical
shoot-'em-ups. These games value skill
above speed, and are enjoyed by children and adults alike.
Written for the VGA MS-DOS environment, they
also run nicely in Windows 3.1 and Windows95.
