    Default dictionary organized by subjects

    I'm looking for a special dictionary where the vocabulary was organized by subjects: the human body, the house, etc. ("ideological" dictionary?). Do you know anything like this in the web?

    You're looking for a dictionary with the vocabulary organized by subject? That description fits my Word Menu, but I know of no other book like it.

    There is a vocabulary page on the web that uses pictures and sounds (mouse click the picture). It is organised by subjects with a new subject every quarter. You can find it here:-

    There's an online picture dictionary:
    http://www.pdictionary.com/
    It isn't very extensive, but it is organised in the way you asked.
    Enchanted learning might be worth checking out:

    You could also try Thesaurus.com
