I put all the words from an English thesaurus into a database.
I linked together all of the synonyms into rows.
Then I took each of those words and linked them to their own synonyms.
And those synonyms I linked to their own synonyms.
At some point in time, there were no more synonyms left from that group.
Yet, there were still words left in the database that weren’t used yet.
Somehow it fell into 5 groups. It might have been artifact of how I did it. I didn’t document my process: I ran with my intuition.
So there’s probably no real meaning to the 5 groups.
The closest I could figure out is:
The first group were “WHOLE”
the second group were “BINARY”
the third group was “MIXING/CONFUSION”
The fourth group was “detail, skipping around”
The fifth group was “whispy, neverwas”
