Implementing WordNet for Swedish adjectives

Forskningsoutput: Working paper

Abstract

A Swedish version of WordNet was created and around 300 Swedish adjectives, mainly from the semantic field of strength, were implemented. This paper is a documentation of the implementation. The purpose of the study was to investigate the possibilities of applying WordNet to Swedish and to illuminate general problems with WordNet as well as specific problems in the handling of adjectives. First, a short overview of WordNet is given, and then the WordNet categorisation of adjectives is reviewed. The section about the implementation gives hands-on knowledge of how to add a new adjectival lexical entry in WordNet. Then a description of the problems encountered and some general remarks follow.
