Research report on Bangla wordnet development challenges and solutions
MetadataShow full item record
We describe the initial design of Bangla WordNet (BWN), based on the English WordNet 2.2 distribution from Princeton University. Our goal is to develop a 5,000 entry Bangla WordNet over the next two years. At present, we are focusing on translating the English Ontology, and so far have created about 250 entries. We describe some of the challenges and potential solutions to these challenges in creating the basic WordNet structure, as well as in mapping the senses from English.
