Polish WordNet

plwordnet_logoFollowing Wednesday’s post about the Bengali WordNet, I have received information about the Polish version.

The Polish wordnet – plWordNet – is a semantic network which reflects the Polish lexical system. The first ever WordNet was built in the late 1980s at Princeton University (see this post). plWordNet is one of few such resources built not by translating the English WordNet, but from the ground up, in a joint effort of lexicographers and computer scientists.  It can be browsed online here: http://plwordnet.pwr.wroc.pl/wordnet/. It is the second largest wordnet in the world.

If you would like to read more about designing wordnets, see this book: http://nlp.pwr.wroc.pl/en/ksiazki/92/show/publication
