The WordNet verb hierarchy is tested, with a view to improving the perform- ance of its applications, revealing topo- logical anomalies and casting doubt on its semantic categories. Encoded tro- ponyms frequently misrepresent other kinds of entailment. Approaches are pro- posed for correcting these anomalies in- cluding a new top ontology.
