   The overall goal of my thesis research is to use the World Wide Web as a source of information to identify sets of words that
   are related in meaning. Methods have been developed to identify words that are related in meaning in fixed or static corpora
   of text. However, given the availability of huge amounts of text via the World Wide Web it is important to develop methods
   that can take advantage of this fact. The Web creates a unique set of challenges, including its ever-changing state, and the
   presence of repetitive, noisy, or low-quality data.

   We are using the search engine Google to retrieve text from the Web. Google has released an API that allows a programmer to
   interface with their content, and retrieve the data in a more convenient form. Thereafter we process that data to find sets of
   related words.
