Try looking at the random indexing literature.  Sparse binary context
vectors should give you pretty much what you need for the context

You can encode your existing synonyms and learn cooccurrence based synonyms
at the same time.  In order to allow you to query using any of these
systems, you would have to increase the size of your index, but unless you
have a huge system, that should be relatively easy.

The idea is that your lucene index would contain separate fields for:

a) the original words

b) the synonym sets for the original words

c) the non-zero content vector components

For a query, you can form three components that correspond to these three
fields and you can include or exclude these at will to find out what works
