Artha: offline Linux thesaurus

Though there is no lack of online dictionaries, it doe help time and again to have one installed locally. I found the multiplatform Artha based on WordNet. It is pretty quick and can be invoked using keyboard shortcuts (which is handy as panel shortcut might have been disabled on Ubuntu due to latest Ubuntu policies). Features include:

  • Regular meaning and usage search with the vast WordNet database
  • Synonyms and antonyms
  • Derivatives, attribute relations
  • Similar words
  • Relative to sense mapping
  • On-the-fly search. Introduced in version 1.0.3.
  • Available in synaptic on Ubuntu
  • Pronunciation feature is in progress
