Lexicography in an Interlingual Ontology: An Introduction to EuroWordNet

Abstract

EuroWordNet is a multilingual lexical database constructed in the wake of WordNet. The ontological structure of the language-dependent layers, analogous to individual WordNets, through the semantic space of the interlingual index and abstract framework of the top level ontologies are examined. The semantic nature of the interlingual lexicon is examined as it applies to Gruber’s principles for the design of ontologies. Benefits of EuroWordNet’s design are highlighted.
