The Sample Data consists of:
All data are provided as plain text files and as databases. The text files are in the EuroWordNet import. The databases can be accessed with the EuroWordNet Viewer Periscope, which has to be installed first. From Periscope, it is possible to export data to ASCII format. The wordnet samples for Dutch, Spanish, Italian, German, French, Czech and Estonian are limited to 3 semantic fields:
The samples contain between 600-1000 synsets. The synsets may be related to other synsets which may or may not be included in the set. The first two fields mainly contain hyponymy relations between synsets. The third field mainly includes other types of relations, howing how different types of concepts that play a role in communicative processes are lexicalized in languages and can be related.
Furthermore, we provide a new version of the Inter-Lingual-Index (ILI) that includes so-called Composite ILI-records. Composite ILI-records group WordNet1.5 senses of polysemous words that are closely related or can be related by regular polysemy patterns. For example, the specific university senses as an institute and as a building, will be related to a Composite record university covering both interpretations.
The Composite ILI-records make the mapping across languages more efficient, and can also provide a more coarse level of sense-differentiation for WordNet1.5. All synsets in the samples are updated for the new ILI, so that synsets linked to a specific sense also got an additional sense to the Composite record.
