  • Full alignment WordNet and Wikipedia (v1.1, 2012-03-14, .zip, 6.1 MB)
    Note: Due to a technical problem in the candidate extraction process, not all candidates were considered for each synset, i.e. some correct alignments are missing. The alignments which are present in the file should be correct. We are currently working on a solution for this and will update this page once new information is available.
  • Well-balanced reference dataset (1.815 annotated sense pairs) (2011-01-02, .txt, 122 KB)
