Abstract

This technique provides for the minimization of storage required to represent the valid synonym data for a list of words which are encoded using a stem word and suffix list storage technique. An efficient technique for storing a large list of words having the same base language is to represent common variations of basic stem words as a list of suffix variations. To ensure optimum performance and storage use, information related to the stored word list should be isolated in a relational data base which should be included as an independent segment of the basic word list dictionary.
