>> Most words in a natural language are synonyms to other words (with  
>> subtle variation of context or meaning).  When words are grouped  
>> with their synonym cousins, a dimensionallity frequently appears  
>> that defines a range of general to specific.  Sprint is a specific  
>> form of run which is a specific form of locomotion which is a  
>> specific form of motion which is more specific than the most  
>> general word in this chain, move.  Having access to an anthology  
>> that associates words into these overlapping chains of specificity  
>> is a fantastically rich resource for the automated derivation of  
>> meaning (semantic processing).  Creating such a beast, at the user  
>> level is prohibitive to all but the most driven (insane) amongst  
>> us.  Doing it once at the tool level so that all can profit... That  
>> is a reasonable goal.
