Open Dutch Wordnet[edit]

Open Dutch WordNet is a Dutch lexical semantic database. It was created by removing the proprietary content from Cornetto, and by using open source resources to replace this proprietary content.

Cornetto-LMF (Lexicon Markup Framework)[edit]

Cornetto is a lexical resource for the Dutch language which combines two resources with different semantic structures. It includes the Dutch Wordnet which organizes words in sets of synonyms (synsets) and records semantic relations between them. It also includes the Dutch Reference Lexicon which organizes words in form-meaning units (lexical entries) and describes them with short definitions, usage constraints, selection restrictions, syntactic behaviours, combinatorial information and illustrative contexts. Cornetto can be considered as the combination of a thesaurus and a dictionary. It is accessible for human use via a web browser and it is also available in XML for computational use (opensourcewordnet). Cornetto has circa 177,000 lexical entries and 70,000 synsets.

DuELME-LMF (Lexicon Markup Framework)[edit]

DuELME is a lexicon of more than 5,000 Dutch multiple-word expressions.

Expressions with the same syntactic pattern are divided into so-called Equivalence Classes, which makes it possible to integrate the lexicon with minimal manual effort into an NLP system. The lexicon has been developed within the framework of the IRME project.
