eXtended WordNet (XWN)

Primary resource type: Semantic networks:WordNets; Other resource tags: General; Resource language: English; Availability: Public; Sponsor: Human Language Technology Research Institute, University of Texas at Dallas

The goal of this project is to develop a tool that takes as input the current or future versions of WordNet and automatically generates an eXtended WordNet that provides several important enhancements intended to remedy the present limitations of WordNet. In the eXtended WordNet the WordNet glosses are syntactically parsed, transformed into logic forms and content words are semantically disambiguated. (11)
