    The thesis focuses on the implementation of an advanced lexical substitution system that was designed as a web application. Lexical substitution is the task of identifying synonyms for words and phrases used in the original text, which enables us to create a new text that is using different words as units of speech while conveying the exact same message. A brief description of the technologies that were used to build the application (namely PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, HTML and CSS) is presented. The problem of lexical substitution itself is presented from a theoretical standpoint, along with a theoretically sound design of a lexical substitution system. The actual implementation of a lexical substitution system and the accompanying technical challenges are presented as the reader progresses. Final results and ideas that could further improve the system are explained in the conclusion.
