Dictionary of Synonyms ?

Hi guys, :D

I saw a little thread about that here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3318&hilit=synonyms
It would be amazing to have a proper SYNONYMS dictionary in Pleco.

My feeling with Chinese is that there are lots of words that seem to mean the same thing in English but have different translations in Chinese depending on the context, the level of language, etc.
:idea: I understand there would be different ways to implement this : (1) We could just have a list of Chinese synonyms with detailed explanations + examples about their differences, or (2) simply having a list of the synonyms words themselves (see Note below) : I imagine clicking different words that have a similar Chinese meaning (or have a similar translation in English) and see the little differences. This could also work in conjunction with the pop-up translations from the other dictionaries.

Note: The LDC dictionary already enables to see synonyms for a given English word.
I just wish we had the same thing for a given Chinese word, e.g. 早上,早晨,凌晨, etc. So that I would not be limited by typing an English word in order to see Chinese synonyms.

Let me know if that isn't clear.

Thanks again for the good work,

T.

Working on it, but no specific release date plan left.
