Synonymizer

Guest
I am programming a new software to be called "Synonymizer". This software will replace synonyms in any text, for vocabulary enrichment and other purposes.

The software is in alpha state, what means it is already functional, although incomplete.

We compiled a synonym list, as a .txt plain file, rating the degree of word equivalence: 100, 80 or 60%.

This list is short (less than 1000 words) and we need to enlarge it using any synonym list or dictionary. However, we cannot get a good one. Most thesaurus are coded inside a software or website, and we cannot export the word list to a plain file.

Anyone who can contribute such a list will be rewarded: credits in the software screen, free copies of the final software, or even a few dollars.

We are also adding some other writing-help tools, like a word frequence analyzer, in order to make a nice tool.

Thanks for any input!

Roget's Thesaurus is available in .txt form from the Gutenberg site- would that help? ;-)

Hi, I'm working on this online tool to 'synonymize' text. You paste the text source into the wysiwyg editor, click the 'Identify' button and you'll get a list of words which can be replaced by synonyms. The synonymizer has over 120.000 terms available.

Here is the address:

What a project! Most English words that are considered synonyms are only synonyms in certain contexts. This is going to be very tough. :shock:

I just tried your site and when I clicked on the synonyms for 'text', the suggestions were rather confusing. It said sense 1/sense 2, but gave no explanation for what these sense are. For 'time' it gave ten senses as a noun, but no explanation. I think that for this to be useful, more information is needed. Otherwise, it will be a rather random business.
