|Title||Using a Dictionary Production System to impose a WordNet on a Dictionary. A Software Presentation|
|Abstract||In this demonstration, we will make a practical presentation of how a semantic web – a WordNet – can be imposed on a dictionary using a Dictionary Production System. Using a WordNet structure makes a lot of sense as there are already several WordNets for different languages which can be used freely.
We will demonstrate how we first impose the structure in a rather crude way allowing for lots of ambiguities and then use the various tools in the Dictionary Production System to target the dubious areas and refine them through manual intervention, either as part of a usual editing of a new edition or in a separate run.
Finally we will demonstrate how the data can be extracted and made available to a Dictionary Publishing System.
