We are pleased to announce the new MultiWordNet website:

http://multiwordnet.itc.it

MultiWordNet is a multilingual lexical database, developed at
ITC-irst, in which the Italian WordNet is strictly aligned with
Princeton WordNet 1.6.

The current version of MultiWordNet includes around 44,400 Italian
lemmas organized into 35,400 synsets which are aligned, whenever
possible, with their corresponding English Princeton synsets.

The MultiWordNet database can be freely browsed through its on-line
interface, and is distributed both for research and commercial use.
Information on the distribution licence is available at the web site.

Best regards,

The MultiWordNet Team
