Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper outlines an approach to the unsu- pervised construction from unannotated paral- lel corpora of a lexical semantic resource akin to WordNet. The paper also describes how this re- source can be used to add lexical semantic tags to the text corpus at hand. Finally, we discuss the possibility to add some of the predicates typi- cal for WordNet to its automatically constructed multilingual version, and the ways in which the success of this approach can be measured.
