[En] Feature Request: Synonym option

Hellow Language Tools Developers! Can we not have a separate tab for Synonym, Antonym, Type of and Types as we get from a regular dictionary? This will be very helpful to find the alternate word and sentences and their usages. Please consider adding this feature in future.

Thanks in advance.:slight_smile:

Features like this belong into an editor. LT is really just a text checker, not an editor.

LT already has a style check for repeated lemma in many languages. Probably it can be
a good feature if it can provide a correction as a list of possible synonyms already put into the agreement (the same case\number\gender etc.).


โ€ฆ Iโ€™m confused about when synonyms became a feature.

The undated article about finding synonyms (no date visible within the article) is supposedly dated 2021-09-22 when listed at e.g. https://languagetool.org/insights/category/product-updates/ however itโ€™s linked from an earlier blog post that was written in August 2021 and is supposedly dated 2021-09-08 (not August) when listed at e.g. https://languagetool.org/insights/.

From issues such as https://github.com/languagetool-org/languagetool/issues/4113 (2021-01-08) and https://github.com/languagetool-org/languagetool/issues/4599 it appears that the feature arrived much earlier in 2021, I might guess that it arrived in 2020.

The date might become known if/when gaps in release notes are filled:

I suspect that my discovery of the feature was months late through a combination of:

  • emptiness of some release notes
  • a feature constraint thatโ€™s not obvious from within the extension.
