In his talk, Dr. Bond will introduce the Open Multilingual Wordnet, a large lexical network of words grouped into concepts and linked by typed semantic relations. The OMW links lexicons for many languages through the Collaborative Interlingual Index (CILI). The talk will cover how the resource has evolved over time (increases in both size and complexity), how people use it and introduce some of the latest extensions.
