ANN: LinkGrammar-WN v1.0 Released - Lexicon addon for the Link Grammar syntactic English parser

Post by ell_NOSPAM » Thu, 09 Oct 2003 10:26:50


LinkGrammar-WN v1.0 has been released. LinkGrammar-WN is a lexicon
addon for the Link Grammar Parser, a syntactic English parser based on
the Link Grammar theory of English syntax.

This project aims to import lexical information from WordNet into the
LGP lexicon. WordNet is an online lexical reference system that in
recent years has become a popular tool for AI researchers.

LinkGrammar-WN v1.0 contains 14,392 noun word forms not available
within the original LGP lexicon, thus increasing the size of the LGP
lexicon by roughly 25%.

This work is based on and inspired by the paper:

"Adding a Medical Lexicon to an English Parser", by Szolovits, P. --
