Abstract


Recent advancements in Computer Technologies have rapidly revolutionized the world. These advancements have immensely increased the need of localization of computer technologies in regional languages and for convenient natural language processing. In this paper, the problem of design and development of Unicode based digital thesaurus is discussed for Sindhi language. Sindhi is one of the oldest and richest languages of the world with a very rich linguistics and literary text. The development of digital Sindhi Thesaurus application is done on Java platform, using hash table structure to act as a database for storing word repository. The hash table structure provides a convenient and easy to implement data structure with multiple advantages of speed and ease of use. The words data is saved as a java bean object in the hash table element with the primary Sindhi word as key. The object is then retrieved and displayed on a user interface of thesaurus.
