Save the code into your .emacs directory or wherever you store your .el files.

My setup:

(setq synonyms-file "/home/rgr/.emacs.d/mthesaur.txt")
(setq synonyms-cache-file "/home/rgr/.emacs.d/syn.cache")
(setq synonyms-match-more-flag nil)

(require 'synonyms)
(define-key mode-specific-map [?S] 'synonyms)
