The different is that similar documents do not give you similar terms. Similar documents can
show a correlation of terms -- ie, whereever Lucene is mentioned so is Solr and Hadoop --
but in no way does this mean that the terms are similar. Accumulating similar and/or synonymous
terms is a manual process. I am sure there are text mining tools/algorithms that make discoveries,
but I do not know about these. (I am a journeyman programmer not a researcher.) If anyone
does know about them, please share with this list.
