Is there anyway that a java application can connection to MS Word's Dictionary and Thesaurus? Working on an application that searches text files for similiar terms. Any suggestions on possible alternatives?

Similar how? Phonetic similarity can use big public word lists, no need to involve MS for just word lists. I have a phonetic demo on my site.
