Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: WordNet 2.1 Java API
Submitter: Philipp Cimiano
Description: Dear all,

some time ago I posted a query asking for a decent WordNet Java API for
WordNet 2.1. I got the two answers below.
(Thanks to Gerard Peregrin and Umesh Patil)

From Gerarde Peregrin:

Brandeis university distributes a Java version of Wordnet for Wordnet 2.0.
The Peregrin Foundation has adapted portions of it to use the recently
distributed Wordnet 2.1 dataset. It has also modestly adjusted the UI. It
is functional as a standalone JWordNet 2.1 or as an plugin package. It is
not yet a complete emulation of the C version of Wordnet nor a complete
re-development of the java source provided by Oliver Steele
[edu.brandeis.cs.steele.win.Browser. (Oliver Steele, steele@cs.brandeis.edu)].

From Umesh Patil:

JWNL: https://sourceforge.net/projects/jwordnet/

This works for WN 2.0... I think it'll work with 2.1 as well but I am not sure.

Hope this also helps other people.
