We generate synthetic images with the ``Stable Diffusion'' image generation model using the Wordnet taxonomy and the definitions of concepts it contains. This synthetic image database can be used as training data for data augmentation in machine learning applications, and it is used to investigate the capabilities of the Stable Diffusion model. Analyzes show that Stable Diffusion can produce correct images for a large number of concepts but also a large variety of different representations. The results show differences depending on the test concepts considered and problems with very specific concepts. These evaluations were performed using a vision transformer model for image classification.
