PanLex is a lemmatic translation re- source which combines a large number of translation dictionaries and other translin- gual lexical resources. It currently covers 1353 language varieties and 12M expres- sions, but aims to cover all languages and up to 350M expressions. This paper de- scribes the resource and current applica- tions of it, as well as lextract , a new effort to expand the coverage of PanLex via semi-automatic dictionary scraping.
