DIctionary MAintenance Programs (DIMAP)

Primary resource type: Tools and software:Dictionary software; Other resource tags: None; Resource language: Not language-specific; Availability: Commercial license; Sponsor: CL Research

DIMAP provides the capability for creating and maintaining dictionaries for use in natural language and language technology applications. DIMAP contains basic functionality for managing multiple dictionaries, search and analysis of dictionary data (such as parsing definitions to create semantic networks and mapping definitions between dictionaries), and import and export of data (e.g., into XML), automatic creation of dictionaries using integrated resources (such as WordNet). All parsing functionality uses the Proximity Parser, with integrated and dynamic auxiliary dictionary lookup, using either WordNet or licensed dictionaries from Macquarie Pty (The Macquarie Dictionary) or Oxford University Press (The New Oxford Dictionary of English). (A free demo version is available, containing the basic dictionary maintenance functionality.) (28)
