Qs: Electronic Thesauri, Hyperonim & Hyponim

Editor for this issue: Karen Milligan <>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Message 1: English/German/Polish thesauri

Subject: English/German/Polish thesauri

Could anyone recommend any readily available mono- or
multilingual electronic thesauri (understood as hierarchies
of terms with relations such as broader term (BT) and
narrower term (NT)) containing terms for any of the
following topics: 
- geography, 
- law, finances,
- science and technology,
- industry,
- medicine, pharmacy?

I am interested mainly in such thesauri for English, German
and Polish.

If there are enough responses, I'll post a summary.

Many thanks in advance.

Message 2: hyperonim and hyponim

From: Grace Helen <>
Subject: hyperonim and hyponim

Dears linguists,

I study and research the Portuguese language and worked in the
just-published "Antonio Houaiss's Dictionary" in Brazil.

I want to get more information concerning other dictionaries, in any 
languages, that also register hyperonim and hyponim.

Can somebody help me, please?

Thanks in advance,

Grace Helen
