Get linguistic patterns
When modern scientists write for journal publications, their aim is not to achieve literary uniqueness but rather literate typicality. WORD-APPLIED combs the largest database of full-text scientific, technical and health publications to find specific linguistic patterns in your field of study.
Quickly find the example you need
New scientific facts are largely described by analogy with already known results. To find an analogical text, WORD-APPLIED guides you through alternative words and short phrase combinations.
Use more words and phrases
With WORD-APPLIED you will use a lot more word combinations instead of “playing it safe” by repeating the same phrases over and over again. Our unique algorithm suggests alternative words and phrases and ranks them according to their occurrence in real articles.
