The purpose is to generate a searchable dictionary of
English synonyms and classes, such that if someone does a search for
"automobile" they will probably be 99% satisfied with a match of "car",
and 30% satisfied with a match of "vehicle".
While many dictionaries and thesauri exist on the Web, they are not usually available for download, and don't usually give single word equivalents. Also, many have been withdrawn due to copyright problems. The product of this project will be made freely available by ftp when sufficient entries have been added.
