The database package is a
complete installation for WordNet 3.0 users. It includes the 3.0 database
files, source code for the WordNet browsers and library, and documentation.
The other packages are not included - they must be downloaded and installed
Note that with this version of WordNet for Unix platforms,
only source code is provided. Users should carefully read the README and
INSTALL files for detailed information on compiling WordNet and dependencies.
The WordNet 3.0 database files are available
in this package in a Prolog-readable format. Documentation describing the
file format is included. This package is only downloadable in compressed
tar file format, although once unpackaged it can be used from Windows
systems since the files are in ASCII. Many Windows utilities, such as
WinZip, can deal with a compressed tar file.
users automatically convert 2.1 noun and verb senses to their corresponding
3.0 senses, we provide sense mapping information in this package. This
package contains files to map polysemous and monosemous words, and documentation
that describes the format of these files. As with the Prolog database,
this package is only downloadable in compressed tar format, but the files
are also in ASCII.
The lexicographer files and grind(1WN)
are not generally distributed.
All of the packages described above may
not be available at the time of release of the 3.0 database package.
