The Thesaurus Initiative is a tool meant to help you develop a stronger vocabulary. Many words have the tendency to be overused. "The man was tall." "That was really cool." "I have a lot of coins." While these statements get their point across, they simply do not possess the same power or eloquence of, "His stature towered above mine," "Very impressive," or "What a heap of coins!" If you are to any degree intrigued by the art of language, then allow this application to flagship you into its realm.

The Thesaurus Initiative is an Adobe AIR application and requires the AIR Runtime to operate. Upon installing the program, it will provide warnings indicating possible unrestricted file access and an unknown publisher. This program is only capable of searching text documents located in its own directly, however, and poses no threat.

The Thesaurus Initiative is compatible with any platform that AIR is compatible with.

The program operates by presenting a word and its base meaning. You must then provide every synonym recorded in the file via a comma-separated list of words. Pressing "Hint" will begin showing the letters of every missing word incrementally. Once all the synonyms have been provided, you may proceed to the next word.

You may add your own words to the file by pressing the "Add Word" at the top of the screen. The Thesaurus Initiative furthermore allows for the creation of custom files in the event that you desire categories of words to be tested rather than a whole.
