E-mail this message to a friend
We are happy to announce the availability of a new version of GermaNet
GermaNet is a lexical-semantic net that relates German nouns, verbs, and
adjectives semantically by grouping lexical units that express the same
concept into synsets and by defining semantic relations between these
synsets. GermaNet has much in common with the English WordNet
(http://wordnet.princeton.edu) and can be viewed as an on-line thesaurus or
a light-weight ontology.
GermaNet has been developed and maintained within various projects by the
research group for General and Computational Linguistics (Director: Prof.
Dr. Erhard Hinrichs) at the University of Tübingen since 1997.
For information about technical details and licensing, please consult the
project home page: http://www.sfs.uni-tuebingen.de/GermaNet/

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
