We have released version 1.0 of the ParaPhrase DataBase (PPDB) which contains 170 million English-English paraphrases: http://paraphrase.org

For technical details, check out +Juri Ganitkevitch's NAACL 2013 paper: http://www.cs.jhu.edu/~ccb/publications/ppdb.pdf

The range of alternate expressions that you get is impressive.  Here are the paraphrases it discovered for "pruned": cropped, trimmed, clipped, cut, carved, reduced, separated, diminished, split, impaired, decreased, shortened, downsized, curtailed, narrowed, lowered, severed, lessened, minimized, depressed, blunted, alleviated, detached, mitigated, scaled, abated, discounted, shrunk, minimised, relegated, eroded, attenuated, undercut, curbed, bridged

In other words, you've made public a database mapping English phrases to other English phrases?

+Daniel Povey If there is one thing that the history of my country has shown us at least twice, then that there are many situations where "following procedure" is not an excuse, but a crime. Defining such procedures even worse.
