    While i was at school today, I was doing some research, and using Microsoft Powerpoint. (I'm not trying to say anything bad about Microsoft.)
    While I was right clicking (so I could paste something) I looked at the toolbar. I saw an option of 'Synonyms' so, out if curiosity, I clicked it!
    I was playing around with words to find synonyms for, and I decided to put in Chickens. (Just so you know, synonyms are supposed to be words that mean the same thing.)
    Here is what it came up with.
    Cowardly
    Scared
    Weak
    Afraid


    [​IMG] Nothing about the real animal. [​IMG]

    So, then I typed in Rooster. Here are the results.
    Hen
    Pullet
    Chick


    Wow!! Someone needs to go back to 1st grade! [​IMG]

    There are different meaning for the word "chicken" the actual bird, a cowardly feeling and of course, the meat. It wasn't giving you a wrong answer by saying cowardly, scared, weak and afriad. Those ARE technically synonyms of the word "chicken"

    A computer isn't able to distinguish which "chicken" you mean [​IMG]

    Quote:Yes, I know. But I think it could've said both the animal and the other one.
    I just thought it was kinda funny! [​IMG]
