Lyracyst is extremely powerful. It talks to Wordnik, Rhymebrain, and Urban Dictionary. It can fetch 16 kinds of related words, 27 parts of speech definitions, ARPABET pronunciations, bi-gram phrases, etymologies, example uses, hyphenation, IPA pronunciations, multiple dictionaries, offensive word flags, portmanteaus, rhymes, slang, and syllable stress and count. I was inspired by Finnegans Wake, I believed I could create a tool that could be used to write a book like Finnegans Wake in a very short time. James Joyce dedicated 17 years of his life to this novel, and as a tribute to him, I've tried to accelerate the process.
