Dear Fellow Linguists,

A resource update is available for a free, public domain, Verb Ontology.
The resources are provided in the Prolog programming language as Prolog
predicates and so should be easy to export to any other formats with a
simple prolog rule.

I expect to update the resources once every two months on average and to
provide as much functionality as possible. I am open to any suggestions or
ideas and will be happy to provide anyone that wishes to contribute verb
resources a means to do so.

The link is available here:


I hope that this will help students and researchers in their work. All
predicates should run under any Prolog language environment.

Thank you,

Arun Majumdar
