FinnWordNet - a Finnish WordNet database

Research output: Non-textual formSoftwareScientific

Abstract

FinnWordNet is a lexical database for Finnish. It is a part of the FIN-CLARIN project. FinnWordNet contains words (nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs) grouped by meaning into synonym groups representing concepts. These synonym groups are linked to each other with relations such as hyponymy and antonymy, creating a semantic network. FinnWordNet can be used in language technology research and applications. It can also be used interactively as an electronic thesaurus. The first version of FinnWordNet has been created by having the words of the original English (Princeton) WordNet (version 3.0) translated into Finnish by professional translators. The current version of the FinnWordNet database can be accessed using a public search interface.
