|14 March, 2008 - WORDNET DICTIONARY AND THESAURUS FOR MSDICT
The newest addition to the MSDict dictionary catalog is now live. The WordNet® Dictionary and Thesaurus, based on the extensive lexical database by the Princeton University Cognitive Science Laboratory, is delivered to mobile users in MSDict format for S60, Symbian UIQ, Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone, BlackBerry and Java.
WordNet® is a large lexical database of English with up to 140,000 entries and more than 1.4 million words, developed by the Cognitive Science Laboratory at Princeton University. Instead of following the standard dictionary format, the WordNet dictionary is organized with an innovative and convenient approach. Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms, interlinked by means of conceptual-semantic and lexical relations. In addition to the straightforward definition the dictionary shows how each word is linked to other words in terms of synonyms, opposites and similar words, but also hyponyms and hyperlinks within the group.
