Are you using Microsoft SQL Server? You could use Full-Text search, you could use SOUNDEX() or DIFFERENCE(). Look them all up in BOL.
Now, that might give you "like" and some "associated" words, but if you need to search for synonyms, you'll need to build or import a list of those.
Then you can still use FT search and map back to the main keyword.
