And not just synonyms and antonyms but also related words
I write a word, and get a whole set of ideas in the selected
target language (or target field of knowledge) and in the
source field as well.
||Uh, Google Translate already does this, sort of. For instance, if I translate "watch" into Russian, it gives me (as well as the main translation) multiple Russian words that mean "watch" in any sense of the word (wristwatch; a person on duty to guard something; to look at, etc).
||Yes I frequently use google translate, but it does not "fan
out" something I want on both sides. So when I write
watch I also get the political contexts "Jew Watch,
Machsom Watch etc." and sayings with the word watch:
"Watch your step". I want Synonyms: Inspect, Stare at,
Look into, Detect, Follow. I want relevant words that show
up when discussing a watch: Clock, clockwork,
watchmaker, hands, seconds, hours, minutes, dates,
DateTime, daytime, time zone, watchtower, adventists (or
is it witnesses? I frequently mix the two), The Big Ben,
Seiko, Sanyo, Alarm clock, Watch this happen, Watch
Russian TV online, Patriarch Kiril I, Strela, Omega,
waterproof, baywatch, time shift etc.
||I want all this info in a structured manner so that it is not
just all lumped together. I want to see only a minimal part
of it revealed and allowing me to open up more or move
on to different categories (and languages).
||It would be useful without translation as well, instead,
showing two sides of a word in two fields of knowledge.
||And "before" translating to Russian I want to choose which
meaning of the word I'm translating to. I would give the
corresponding translation, along with the other
translations as it does today, but, again, in a structured
manner, connected to the actual word requested to be
||What in the name of small fish is a //Jew Watch// ??
