WordNet is a database of semantic relations. It describes semantic relations between the most frequent Slovak nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs following the general model of English WordNet. Slovak entries (synsets) are mapped to English synsets.
The project is still in the development stage. The database currently contains 25 000 synsets. It has been made available to give an insight into the data and processing technologies. The file format can change.
The files are encoded using UTF-8 with the Unix line ending (LF, \n, U+00A0 …). Each synset is a single line consisting of two records separated by a symbol ␞ U+241E SYMBOL FOR RECORD SEPARATOR. The first Slovak record is linked to the other from Princeton WordNet.
Format of the Slovak record
Each record includes 4 annotations separated by a tab (\t):
Slovak synset can be linked to several English synsets.
