Project description

Wordnet is a lexical database of semantic relations between words in more than 200 languages. WordNet links words into semantic relations including synonyms, hyponyms, and meronyms.

The goal is to make sure all the data-types (semantic relations, parts-of-speech, verb patterns, ...) are properly documented. The goal is that both dictionary users and dictionary developers can access this easily, and we have a procedure for adding more documentation as needed and also to have the documentation dynamically produced with the lexicons, so that there is always the same set of relations that examples can be pulled in directly from the database.
