JSword was previously called ProjectB which grew from a project vaguely
along just these lines I think.
I exported the KJV text from the OnLine Bible and ran a program to
extract the words along with the strongs numbers that related to the
word. I then put it all into an access database so I could look up the
strongs numbers that gave rise to any English word and the visa-versa.
I planned to extend this by creating an automatic translation by
defaulting a translation of every Greek word (according to popularity).
Such youthful ideas! This would then be an interesting way to dig around
with the senses of various words.
There is a remnant of this in org.crosswire.jsword.book.StudyTool. But
code doesn't even start to address meaning.
I came across WordNet some time ago while designing the search engine
and investigating extending searches using a thesaurus.
WordNet knows all about senses - that's where the net bit comes in.
Not sure any of that is much use though - I think you wanted a book with
the answers in now!
