Thesauraus for MS-DOS 6.21? (Users)

I just tried to use Google to find a thesaurus program that will run under MS-DOS 6.21 but all I got were pages that showed synonyms for "MS-DOS" :-D

Do any of you know of a DOS thesaurus program that I could try running under MS-DOS 6.21?

I don't know of any stand-alone thesaurus, but some of the high-end word processors (like WordPerfect) have a built-in thesaurus. It actually only takes a few seconds to open up WordPerfect for DOS and do a thesaurus search, and I've done that before just to look up a single word when I didn't have a hard-copy thesaurus handy.
