Software News   Software News : WordNet 3.0 released for AmigaOS4
   posted by Trixie on 1-Sep-2009 17:36:34 (2916 reads)
WordNet is a large electronic database of the English language developed at the Cognitive Science Laboratory, Princeton University. It contains more than 155 thousand words and phrases that are semantically tagged and interlinked to form an intricate, hierarchical network of word meanings. This network can be walked through using a native OS4 browser.

Being more than just a dictionary, it is an indispensable tool for translators, English learners, English teachers, linguists, copywriters, etc.

It is a port in the sense that I use the original sources to search in the WordNet database files but the browser itself is written from scratch, and contains various fixes and improvements to the original Princeton code.

Although WordNet does have a web-based service, this one is a standalone, offline application, not a client.

Download and enjoy!

Very nice work - I'm still thinking about possible use cases for myself. In a first step I would "misuse" it as a biiiig thesaurus...

At the very least, you can use it as a learning tool! True, WordNet is not conceived as a learner's dictionary (like Oxford's OALD, for example) but it is great for extending your vocabulary.

Another indispensable feature for an English learner is the Sentence Frames search, which tells you how to use a verb to produce a grammatically correct sentence.

Finally, WordNet also contains names of places and famous people so it can be used as a simple encyclopaedia as well.

The best way is to download it and try it for yourself WordNet is well worth it.

Then WordNet is THE tool for you, because vocabulary is what it's all about.

I used WordNet (the Windows version) extensively when revising vocabulary for my CPE (an English exam organized by Cambridge University). I then made an OS4 version because a) the Windows browser is really lame, and b) some people in here complained that OS4 has no "serious applications".

Well here you get a pretty serious one

Well the speech output is mostly a fun feature (not present in the original WordNet) but I wanted to add it because

a) some non-natives might find it useful to get at least a rough idea of how the word is pronounced;
b) it is unlikely that WordNet will ever get a proper pronunciation set ("talkie") like OALD or the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English have.

If Fredrik Wikstrom ever makes his flite.device support more Flite features, I can make WordNet's speech output configurable, to add even more fun to the pack
