Towards a universal index of meaning
MetadataShow full item record
The Inter-Lingual-Index (ILI) in the EuroWordNet architecture is an initially unstructured fund of concepts which functions as the link between the various language wordnets.The ILI concepts originate from WordNet1.5, and have been restructured on the basis of aspects of the internal structure of Word-Net,links between WordNet and other resources,and multilingual mapping between the wordnets. This leads to a differentiation of the status of ILI concepts,a reduction of the Wordnet polysemy,and a greater connectivity between the wordnets. The restructured ILI represents the first step towards a standardized set of word meanings,is a working platform for further development and testing,and can be put to use in NLP tasks such as (multilingual)information retrieval.
