Short word descriptions in JSON format

Hi, the replacements list in our JSON output now has an optional new item shortDescription for each value. It can contain a short definition/hint about the word. Currently, the only words that have a short description are ones that have a description in confusion_sets.txt (i.e. a text after the | symbol).

As seen in this example, this can be useful if there are many similar words suggested. Currently this is just part of the API (to be deployed tonight) and not used anywhere yet.

It’s now online, see an example at https://languagetool.org/api/v2/check?text=The%20wether%20is%20nice&language=en-US
