WordNet::Similarity Bibliography

Maintained by Ted Pedersen
(Last update: August 10, 2009)

If you have used WordNet::Similarity (or WordNet::SenseRelate) in work that has resulted in a paper, article, thesis, dissertation, technical report, etc... please let the world know about it by listing your publication here!

Add new entries online or by sending email to tpederse AT d umn edu

You might also want to check citations of WordNet::Similarity according to Google Scholar. Despite the availability of tools like this, we are still interested in maintaining this bibliography, so please do let us know about any of your WordNet::Similarity related publications!


This bibliography lists publications that are due (at least in part) to the use of WordNet::Similarity, a Perl package that allows users to measure semantic relatedness and similarity between concepts found in the lexical database WordNet. Any work using WordNet::SenseRelate, a WSD algorithm based on WordNet::Similarity, could also be listed here.

Keywords: word sense disambiguation
Comments: Strictly speaking, this isn't about WordNet-Similarity since it was written before the package existed. However, this thesis marks the beginnings of the lesk measure, and Bano's original implementation of lesk still remains in the package to large degree.
