I see. It's funny that we have this kind of duplicates. The Italian 
thesaurus is already free from this. We maybe have stuff like

(everyday usage)|one|two|three
(medical jargon)|two|three|four

where "two" and "three" are repeated but carry two different meanings 
(so the first line might refer to a word in everyday usage and the 
second to a word in medical jargon, where only part of the previous 
synonyms still apply).
