2023-05-23: DDS/COR improvements & links to DDO
The following changes to our data sets will be available in the next version:
- Many DanNet words and senses have been linked to DDO via the new
- Unofficial conjugations present in the COR companion data set have been marked as such in their
- Various other smaller tweaks to the COR dataset.
- The DDS data set now uses 32-bit
floatas opposed to
double, which results in a smaller RDF export as this data type doesn't require any special encoding in .ttl-files.
2023-05-11: The new DanNet
There are too many changes in this initial release to list all of them in a succinct way:
- Around 5000 new senses have been added, mostly adjectives.
- Many data set inconsistencies and other undesirable properties have been cleaned up.
- The entirety of DanNet has been converted to the Ontolex standard and uses the relations from the Global WordDet Association.
- DanNet is now RDF-native; RDF schemas are also available covering e.g. the ontological types.
- The DSL-derived DanNet IDs all resolve to actual RDF resources which can be viewed in a browser.
- Several companion data sets are available for download and are also merged with the data on wordnet.dk.
- Additional data points have also been inferred from the bootstrap data, e.g. inverse relations.
- The CSV download is now CSVW and includes metadata files describing contents of the columns.
- The DanNet data is now licensed as CC BY-SA 4.0 and the source code of the project is available under the MIT licence.
- ... and of course wordnet.dk/dannet is the new home of DanNet.
In addition to the work done on DanNet itself, we have also contributed to the Global WordNet Association's RDF schema.
