On-a-mat-o'-meaning is a game where you can explore how the sound of a word influences its meaning. You can create new words that attempt to sound like the thing they are describing, and then go on to change the words to make them fit the definitions better. The game makes you think about how much a word draws its meaning from its sound (and spelling), and how much of the meaning is drawn from context.
