Welcome to the Open Multilingual Wordnet (OMW) project. The goal
of this project is to make it easy to use wordnets in multiple
languages. We have been working for many years to make a shared
format and link the wordnets together. OMW and its components are
open: they can be freely used,
modified, and shared by anyone for any purpose.
There is a fuller list of wordnets at the Global Wordnet Association's
in the World page.
If you use these wordnets, please cite the original projects
who created them, if you got value from this
aggregation/normalization, please cite Bond and Paik (2012).
There are currently two versions of the OMW.
- OMW Version 1 links hand created wordnets and
automatically created wordnets for over a 150 languages
through the Princeton Wordnet of English.
- OMW Version
2, the current (experimental) version, uses the
Collaborative Interlingual Index to link the wordnets
together (Bond etal., 2016)
