[Perlfect-search] Synonyms?

Hi all,

We've just implemented logging using PerlFect
Search, and are now generating two separate

* Most popular searches
* Failed search terms

The second report has highlighted that visitors
are mis-typing quite a few searches, or are
using a range of terms for the same thing.

What we would like to do is implement a
"synonyms list", so that if a visitor uses
one term, it also matches documents containing
its synonyms.

Has anyone done this using PerlFect?
Any advice?

Thanks in advance,
