Venue International Conference on Computational Linguistics
Session System Demonstration
Year 2010

This presentation introduces a Python module (PyCWN) for accessing and processing Chinese lexical resources. In particular, our focus is put on the Chinese Wordnet (CWN) that has been developed and released by CWN group at Academia Sinica. PyCWN provides the access to Chinese Wordnet (sense and relation data) under the Python environment. The presenation further demonstrates how this module applies to a variety of lexical processing tasks as well as the potentials for multilingual lexical processing.
