Abstract This thesis deals with the science behind language and the branch textual similarity, and the algorithms within this branch. The main focus is to develop an application, which can measure the similarity between a set of text. The overall proposed system has various external third-party components implemented to incorporate a higher reliability. A back-bone module is the use of WordNet as kind of a semantic lexicon. A collection of various existing approaches to measure similarity between texts is presented, and by specifying a set of requirements to the application, and relate these requirements to the stated approaches, it can be evaluated that these approaches is not exhaustive enough to cover the requirements. The project suggests multiple new develop algorithms to cover the requirements.
