1] I need to find accurate synonyms for a list of approximately 1,300 words.
2] Attached you will find a 20-word sample of the list.
3] I would like to find as many "good" synonyms for each word as possible (up to 4 synonyms per word)..
By "good synonym", I mean:
a - the synonym is relatively close in meaning to the original word
b - the synonym is a single word
For example, I would consider good synonyms for the word "abandon" to be: "discard", "desert" and "leave", whereas bad synonyms might be: "leave behind" (because it's 2 words), and I would also consider "dump" to be a bad synonym -> since this list will be used for a vocabulary improvement program, I'm trying to avoid using overly simplistic words.. Of course, this involves some judgement, so *don't worry about being perfect*.
4] I recommend using the MS Word Thesaurus by creating a macro such as:
For i = 1 To 100
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view] Unit:=wdCell
Then place your cursor in the first cell of the table in attached MSWord document and start replacing with the best synonyms.
5] If there are less than 4 "good" synonyms for a word, just insert the acceptable ones, and then "cancel" through the rest (leaving the original word in the table cell).
There will often be less than 4 "good" synonyms.. In many cases, there may be just 1 or even no good synonyms.*
6] As mentioned, the list is approximately 1,300 words. If you'd like to bid on this project, it would be best if you could provide a sample of your work by completing the attached sample (20 words only).
With your bid, **please also provide your estimated time to completion** - and how soon you can start.
