software OS4   software OS4 : WordNet 3.4 released
   posted by Trixie on 13-Jun-2012 7:23:14 (1547 reads)
Daniel "Trixie" Jedlicka has released a new version of the popular electronic dictionary WordNet. 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 comfortable, OS4-native browser.

Feature in this release:

- NEW: WordNet can now operate in two different user modes. The default "Learner" mode only displays sense overviews, providing an easier and faster access to word meanings. When in this mode, WordNet looks and works like a traditional electronic dictionary. The more advanced "Linguist" mode shows all possible linguistic information about the searched words.

- NEW: The Preferences window now replaces the original Settings menu.

- NEW: Pop-up gadget and menu in the window bar (OS4.1 Update 3 required).

- NEW: WordNet can now be pushed to any currently opened public screen using the jump-to-screen feature (OS4.1 Update 3 required), accessible from the pop-up menu.

- UPDATE: The program no longer relies on an external viewer (such as MultiView) to display its help file. Online help is now provided using AmigaGuide Library.

- UPDATE: Optimized GUI initialization: the program now starts up a bit faster.

- UPDATE: Major code overhaul with numerous little fixes and optimizations.

Download from OS4depot.net.

Slightly of topic: It would be nice if we'd have a Prolog interpreter for OS4 as well, to fully exploit the power of WordNet. A niche within a niche, but anyway (just dreaming). I'm afraid I don't posses any OS4 machines anymore, otherwise I would be tempted to look into getting SWI-prolog or gprolog to run on OS4.

Still, nice work Trixie, this can probably be valuable to anyone writing things using OS4 (you lucky bastards).

@trixie

i use this all the time; it's a terrific program. this update works well on my SAM with OS4.1u4, and is the first reaction-based tool i've seen that uses the pop-up gadget.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

@all

Glad you like it and find it useful. The original idea was for an even better-featured release including the updated WordNet database. However, despite Princeton having announced it a whole year ago (June 2011), the files are still not publicly available so you'll have to wait for WordNet 3.5
