htdig: Intelligent Engine...

I am mailing you regarding a question I have been unable to resolve and after
reading a book called 'Web guide to search engines' I noticed your
e-mail address had been placed in the book.

I wondered if it is possible to create a type of thesaurus list that a search
engine can check every time it runs, and this list can be updated with relevant
words. e.g.
    If I wanted to do a fuzzy search on 'Jazz Night Out In North London'
    The search engine would check the list and think 'ah, it say's night, so I
   could also check for anything with evening'.

Is this possible, and if so would you be able to point me in the correct
direction to implementing this, thanks in advance.
