    Well, it is much work, and as I mentioned in my post, because of bugs in Modeler,
    I need to do it all the time the DB is changing, cause "overwriting" doesn't work well,
    and only "first time" reverse engineering is delivering a nice and clean recognition/mapping.

    The idea is to use a NLP library that knows such things, and just use it.
    IMHO this is not much work.

    Besides, as I mentioned, it must not be perfect: it's good enough if it does for the 95% of
    the words - it's still way more than doing the entire thing manually.
