Subject Re: populating synonyms.txt
Date Fri, 02 Oct 2009 08:43:02 GMT

I understand that synonyms are domain-specific, although I could still see a
benefit of having standardized synonyms.txt files (a thesaurus) for general
use. Just like the ones you can download or is already embedded in word
processors like Open Office Writer or MS Word.

I can understand that you can get an english from, but I need
other major languages  and Scandinavian languages as well. 

Does someone know where I can find multiple thesaurus'es? Maybe even some
targeted at solr?
