English nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are organized into synonym sets, each representing one underlying lexical concept. Different relations link the synonym sets. ..."

There must be some way I can use this...

Yep Jon, it is a fully functional .Net port. I modified Malcolm Crowe's original port to work with the WordNet 2.1 database, included missing word relation searches and fixed all known bugs. The project is LGPL, so I encourage everyone to get involved.
