Data representations for WordNet: A case for RDF

This paper discusses current versions of WordNet from a data modelling perspective. We show that these versions do not consider basic data model desiderata for their design, like flexibility, extensibility and interoperability. We claim that a data model for WordNet must also consider the inherent network structure of WordNet data. Thus we make the case for an RDF model for WordNet and present a concrete version of WordNet in RDF format.
