Brijesh Bhatt, Lahari Poddar and Pushpak Bhattacharyya

The 51st Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics - Short Papers (ACL Short Papers 2013)
Sofia, Bulgaria, August 4-9, 2013


We present IndoNet, a multilingual lexical knowledge base for Indian languages. It is a linked structure of wordnets of 18 different Indian languages, Universal word dictionary and upper ontology SUMO.We discuss various benefits of the network and challenges involved in the development. The system is encoded in Lexical Markup Framework. This standardized version of lexical knowledge base of Indian Languages can now be linked to global resources automatically. We propose modifications to LMF to accommodate Universal Word Dictionary and SUMO.
