The goal of the present paper is to report on the on-going research for applying psycholinguistic resources to building a WordNet-like lexicon of the Russian language. We are to survey different kinds of the linguistic data that can be extracted from a Word Association Thesaurus, a resource representing the results of a largescaled free association test. In(More)
The paper deals with reuse and testing of psycholinguistic resources in linguistic studies. We report on the experimental work aiming at comparing and evaluation of linguistic information provided by Word Association Norms (WAN) with that derived from other language resources (LRs), namely corpora and wordnets. Results for 3 European languages: Russian,(More)
The paper reports the on-going research for applying psycholinguistic resources to building and extending semantic networks. We survey different kinds of information that can be extracted from a Word Association Thesaurus (WAT), a resource representing the results of a large-scaled free association test. In addition, we give a comparison of WAT and other(More)
The paper discusses the importance of thesauri and ontologies for digital libraries. The role of multilingual ontologies as well as other lexical resources is tackled. We briefly survey and compare different forms of assistance used to make information stored in digital libraries more accessible for humans and more understandable for computers. A special(More)
This paper deals with the problem of structuring adjectives in a wordnet. We will present several methods of dealing with this problem based on the usage of different language resources: frequency lists, text corpora, word association norms, and explanatory dictionaries. The work has been developed within the framework of the RussNet project aiming at(More)
The present paper describes psycholinguistic experiments aimed at exploring the way people behave while accessing electronic dictionaries. In our work we focused on the access by meaning that, in comparison with the access by form, is currently less studied and very seldom implemented in modern dictionary interfaces. Thus, the goal of our experiments was to(More)
The paper deals with corpus-based methods applied to the particular tasks of lexical database construction. Different techniques of the corpus analysis are discussed and their applicability for the tasks is assessed. Corpus management system Manatee + Bonito developed at the Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic, is presented as(More)
This paper presents OASIS – a new tool that enables (semi)automatic conversion of existing knowledge bases, semantic networks, terminological databases and various other resources to complex ontologies into OWL. The tool is implemented as a client of DEB (Dictionary Editor and Browser) which is able to store, index and efficiently retrieve lexical data. The(More)
