Subject: Online Hebrew Lexicon
I'd like to report a language resource for Hebrew: a Hebrew lexicon, which is
constantly being updated and expanded.
The lexicon contains over 16,000 lexicon items, each with morpho-syntactical
The lexicon aims to achieve full coverage (excluding proper names) of Modern
Hebrew words that appear on daily online news-sites. Further work is being done
to allow it to be multilingual (starting with English). Yet further development
will aim at integrating wordnets with it.
The resource is based on XML with a specialized XML Schema. There's also a GUI
browser/editor available for those who wish to be able to easily process the
resource or similar resources without having to develop software.

A demo of a finite-state morphological analyzer for Hebrew based on this lexicon
