WordNet::Similarity is a freely available soft- ware package that makes it possible to mea- sure the semantic similarity and relatedness be- tween a pair of concepts (or synsets). It pro- vides six measures of similarity, and three mea- sures of relatedness, all of which are based on the lexical database WordNet. These measures are implemented as Perl modules which take as input two concepts, and return a numeric value that represents the degree to which they are similar or related.
