SGN: A Semantic Network of Related Concepts

This semantic network links 7,662 of the most frequently occurring nouns in a large corpus (Wikipedia) to their semantically related concepts in WordNet 3.0. It contains 208,832 undirected edges, relating a total of 25,142 nouns, with 38,249 distinct concepts (word senses) among them. The process by which the network was automatically constructed is detailed in the references below. The expansion and refinement of the network is the subject of our ongoing research. Please feel free to contact Sean Szumlanski with questions or general discussion regarding this work.
