Subject: WordNet 1.7 in alphabetic and XML form
I am making freely available a complete conversion of WordNet and all
its data into alphabetic dictionaries (all relations are preserved and
glosses have been taken apart). These dictionaries are viewable only in
my PC-only DIMAP software.
I have made available a demo version that contains all the functionality
necessary for viewing, editing, maintaining, extending, and conversion
into user-defined formats. I have included a user-defined template for
the complete conversion of WordNet into XML. The dictionaries are 15 MB
compressed and 55 MB uncompressed. The XML versions may be up to 300
MB. The template and accompanying DTD and XML Schema can be modified.
To obtain the demo, click on the Demos button at my web site. To obtain
WordNet, click on the Electronic Dictionaries button.
Many errors in conversion may appear in these files, particularly in my
treatment of the glosses. Please report any problems to me, not the
folks at WordNet. The conversion only takes a few hours (and can in
fact be accomplished via the functionality available in the demo), so I
can improve and periodically update both the demo and the files.
I hope that this small contribution may help our abilities to
communicate in these difficult times.
(Apologies for cross-posting.)
