wnpkgs - description of various WordNet system packages DESCRIPTION
WordNet 3.0 is distributed in several formats and in various packages. All of the packages are available via anonymous FTP from and from the WordNet Web site at Packages Available Via FTP and WWW The following WordNet packages can be downloaded using a web browser from, or from the Web site noted above. Users can also FTP directly from, directory wordnet/3.0. +----------------+---------------------+-----------+-------------------------------+ | Package | Filename | Platform | Description | +----------------+---------------------+-----------+-------------------------------+ |Database | WordNet-3.0.tar.gz | Unix/OS X | WordNet 3.0 database, inter- | | | | | faces, sense index, interface | | | | | and library source code, doc- | | | | | umentation. | |Database | WordNet-3.0.exe | Windows | WordNet 3.0 database, inter- | | | | | faces, sense index, interface | | | | | and library source code, doc- | | | | | umentation. | |Prolog Database | WNprolog-3.0.tar.gz | All | WordNet 3.0 database files in | | | | | Prolog-readable format, docu- | | | | | mentation. | |Sense Map | WNsnsmap-3.0.tar.gz | All | Mapping of 2.1 to 3.0 senses, | | | | | documentation. | +----------------+---------------------+-----------+-------------------------------+ Database Package The database package is a complete installation for WordNet 3.0 users. It includes the 3.0 database files, source code for the WordNet browsers and library, and documentation. The other packages are not included - they must be downloaded and installed separately. Note that with this version of WordNet for Unix platforms, only source code is provided. Users should carefully read the README and INSTALL files for detailed information on compiling WordNet and dependencies. Prolog Database Package The WordNet 3.0 database files are available in this package in a Prolog-readable format. Documentation describing the file format is included. This package is only downloadable in compressed tar file format, although once unpackaged it can be used from Windows systems since the files are in ASCII. Many Windows utilities, such as WinZip, can deal with a compressed tar file. Sense Map Package To help users automatically convert 2.1 noun and verb senses to their corresponding 3.0 senses, we provide sense mapping information in this package. This package contains files to map polysemous and monosemous words, and documentation that describes the format of these files. As with the Prolog database, this package is only downloadable in compressed tar format, but the files are also in ASCII. NOTES
The lexicographer files and grind(1WN) program are not generally distributed. All of the packages described above may not be available at the time of release of the 3.0 database package. SEE ALSO

CNTLIST(5)						      WordNettm File Formats							CNTLIST(5)

cntlist - file listing number of times each tagged sense occurs in a semantic concordance, sorted most to least frequently tagged cntlist.rev - file listing number of times each tagged sense occurs in a semantic concordance, sorted by sense key DESCRIPTION
A cntlist file for a semantic concordance lists the number of times each semantically tagged sense occurs in the concordance and its sense number in the WordNet database. Each line in the file corresponds to a sense in the WordNet database to which at least one semantic tag points. Only senses that are tagged in a concordance are in the concordance's cntlist file. WordNet Database cntlist File In the WordNet database, words are assigned sense numbers based on frequency of use in semantically tagged corpora. The cntlist file used by grind(1) to build the WordNet database and assign the sense numbers is a union of the cntlist files from the various semantic concor- dances that were formerly released by Princeton University. This combined cntlist file is provided with the WordNet package and is found in the WNSEARCHDIR directory. The cntlist.rev file is used at run-time by the WordNet library code and browser interfaces to print in the output display the number of times each sense has been tagged. File Format Each line in a cntlist file contains information for one sense. The file is ordered from most to least frequently tagged sense. The fields are separated by one space, and each line is terminated with a newline character. Senses having the same tag_cnt value are listed in reverse alphabetical order of the lemma field of the sense_key. Each line in cntlist is of the form: tag_cnt sense_key sense_number where tag_cnt is the decimal number of times the sense is tagged in the corresponding semantic concordance. sense_key is a WordNet sense encoding and sense_number is a WordNet sense number as described in The cntlist.rev file contains the same fields described above, in the following order: sense_key sense_number tag_cnt NOTES
Princeton no longer maintains or releases the Semantic Concordance files. The cntlist file used to order the senses in WordNet 3.0 was generated from the Semantic Concordance files at the point that they were last updated in 2001. In general, the order of senses presented usually reflects what the user would expect, however sense ordering is now less reliable than in prior releases and should not be construed as an accurate indicator of frequency of use.
