WordNet: An Electronic Lexical Database (Language, Speech, and Communication) Description

\n\n

with a preface by George Miller

WordNet, an electronic lexical database is considered the most critical resource available to researchers in computational linguistics, text analysis, and several other related fields. Its style is inspired by psycholinguistic theories and computer human lexical memory. English nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are organized into synonym sets, each representing one underlying lexical idea. Diverse relations link the synonym sets.

The purpose of this volume is twofold. First, examine the style of WordNet and the theoretical justification behind it. Second, it gives an overview of representative applications, which includes the identification of word meanings, info retrieval, selectional preferences of verbs, and lexical chains
