I have emailed a complaint about this patent. The address to complain to is
The grounds on which I have complained are:
a. Obscure English and grammatical errors in the abstract.
b. The obvious nature of the claimed innovation.
c. The existence of prior art (e.g. existing thesauruses and search engines).
d. Denial of human rights of programmers to freedom of expression through creative construction of semantic relationships in program source code through software patents monopolising connections of this kind. Rights to freedom of expression in languages of choice are guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights.
e. The fact that software patents are not legal within the EU despite failed attempts to make them legal.
