The Basque WordNet is a lexical database including information about Basque words. It is an extension of WordNet 1.6, a lexical database for English developed at the Princeton University. The Basque WordNet is tightly aligned to the English WordNet.
The Basque WordNet models nouns, verbs and adjectives. Each sense is linked to a so-called synset. Every synset encodes the synonymy relation between (possibly) several words (synonyms), having a unique meaning, belonging to one and the same part of speech (specified in the POS tag value), and expressing the same lexical meaning. Each synset is related to the corresponding synset in the English WordNet 1.6. via its identification number ID, which includes the synset number and the POS tag. The only exceptions are newly created synsets to account for cultural concepts not present in WordNet 1.6.
The Basque WordNet is provided following the Lexical Markup Framework (LMF, ISO/TC37) and it contains the following:
LMF can be imported directly in the DebVisDic tool for browsing and editing wordnets (not included).
Figures for the Basque WordNet are distributed as follows :
