Sanskrit WordNet

Sanskrit WordNet

The Sanskrit WordNet is an on-going collaboration between the University of Pavia and the University of Exeter, under the joint direction of William Michael Short and Silvia Luraghi to create a comprehensive lexico-semantic database of the Sanskrit language. It is intended to model Sanskrit's semantic system as fully and accurately as possible, in a form that is machine-interpretable and machine-actionable, and thus suitable to NLP applications of different kinds, especially in the area of natural language understanding.

This project builds on, and extends, original work by Oliver Hellwig for the Digital Corpus of Sanskrit, with Erica Biagetti serving as the project's technical coordinator.
