Description - WordNet by Christiane Fellbaum

WordNet, a electronic lexical database, is considered to be the most important resource available to reseachers in computational linguistics, text analysis, and many related areas. Its design is inspired by late-1990s psycholinguistic and computational theories of human lexical memory. English nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs are organized into synonym sets, each representing one underlying lexical concept. Different relations link the synonym sets. The purpose of this volume is twofold. First, it discusses the design of the current version of WordNet and the theoretical motivations behind it. Second, it provides a survey of representative applications, including word sense identification, information retrieval, selectional preferences of verbs, and lexical chains.
