Found this short story in the online pages of the Irish Times newspaper, about a new website serving synonyms.
Nice one, I thought; let's see.
Went to this thesaurasize website, typed 'merger' in the search box.
I so wonder... Why bear the yoke of manually curating a thesaurus, when the Internet gives us the thesaurasizor?Oopps, it doesn't offer any synonym for 'thesaurasizor'...You will note in their About page that thesaurasize is based on Wiktionary (specifically Wikisaurus) and Princeton WordNet.Has anybody based a production system on any of these?Kind regards,
