Aiksaurus is a command line thesaurus. Aiksaurus produces a list of words. The words are grouped together by type in alphabetical order. The groups will be shown with a heading preceded and followed by equal "=" signs. If a word cannot be found, a list of words which alphabetically precede and follow the word you specified are given.
Aiksaurus is not installed by default. To install it:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install aiksaurus
