In the context of text mining, I'd like to discover potential synonyms in my dataset. The current dataset is stackexchange's stackoverflow data on archive.org. The result doesn't have to be perfect, I can post-process it by hand. But I need help to have a clue of which term seems to be "similar" to another term.
Here examples of synonyms I am looking for:
- postgresql, postgres, pgsql, psql
- mobile, phone, android, iphone
Also in best case, it should be possible to also guess multi word synonyms like:
- rdbms, relational database management system
- obama, barack obama
The algorithm doesn't need to compute whether those are many-way synonyms (like rdbms and relational database management system) and one-way synonyms (like iphone is mobile but not all mobile are iphone).
I read that word2vec can be helpful but I am not sure how to use it.
