OneLook Reverse Dictionary

Thanks to JournoList (via Prints the Chaff) for directing my attention to the OneLook Reverse Dictionary:

OneLook’s reverse dictionary lets you describe a concept and get back a list of words and phrases related to that concept. Your description can be a few words, a sentence, a question, or even just a single word. Just type it into the box above and hit the “Find words” button. (Keep it short to get the best results.) In most cases you’ll get back a list of related terms with the best matches shown first.

This resource is quite handy. My search for “dictionary collector” informed me that I’m a lexiconophilist.
