  • So, suppose you wanted to say: "I remembered that...". Well, you could also say it as: I recalled that I recalled to mind that I reminisced that I was reminded that etc. This system is to help one come up with those possibilities.

It can also grade the recommendations based on various properties. This is similar in some way to the 'bard -c' functionality, only that works on a small word or possibly phrase. This would be more general, and take advantage of nlg systems, such as possibly Halogen. I'd like to have an emacs mode for it, of course, in which you move the mark or region over the area to be altered. It could also operate on parse trees.
