TitleRight or Wrong: Combining Lexical Resources in the EuroWordNet Project
AbstractIn the EuroWordNet-project we will construct wordnets from existing resources for Spanish, Dutch and Italian, similar to the Princeton WordNet 1.5. Each of these wordnets will be developed as a separate language-internal system but each meaning will be linked to the closest meaning in WordNetl.5. In this way we hope to combine information from independently created resources, making the ultimate database more consistent and reliable, while keeping the richness and diversity of the vocabularies of the different languages. Two problems are discussed here: how to achieve overlap in the concepts that are represented in each wordnet and to interpret difference in the lexical semantic relations or configurations across the wordnets.
