Where to get synonym.txt file for the english language?

                    "synonym" : {
                        "type" : "synonym",
                        "synonyms_path" : "analysis/synonym.txt"

WordNet is such a thing but isn't generally used as a silver bullet for solving information retrieval.

Users typically craft smaller sets of domain-specific entries e.g. iphone = i-phone which are much more focused and useful.

I don't understand, what if you man , male, or woman female? if you don'y have synonyms you will fail very quickly. wordnet or not, if we have synonyms for each word in the english vocabulary seem to me that it is a must especially if you're planning general purpose search engine.

"WordNet has been used in information retrieval
research by many researchers, but failed to improve the performance of their retrieval system. "
