Description (in English): 

What is a synonym? Sometimes, we pick the wrong word. ChangeEverything is a web app based on the naive belief that every word can be replaced by one of its synonyms. Using a live connection to a remote thesaurus, ChangeEverything provides variation on a text slowly straying from the original phrase to a perfect non-sense. Click after click, the user provokes a progressive drift in meaning. The user is also invited to take part in the random selection of synonyms. When pressing the mouse longer, a list of synonyms will appear, enabling the user to pick the version he or she prefers. The app is written in HTML5/Ajax with the Jquery Library.
