Regular synonyms

This is your standard synonym logic, where each word in a list of synonyms can be replaced by the others.

For example, in a list “pants, trousers”, a search for “trousers” returns records with “pants”, and a search for “pants” returns “trousers”.

   "type": "synonym",
   "synonyms": [
      "pants",
      "trousers"
   ]
}

You can also create synonym groups. For example, you can add “slacks” to the “pants, trousers” group: a search for “slacks” returns “pants” and “trousers”, and a search for “pants” returns “trousers” and “slacks”.
