Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics

GernEdiT (short for: GermaNet Editing Tol) ofers a graphical interface for the lexicogra- phers and developers of GermaNet to aces and modify the underlying GermaNet re- source. GermaNet is a lexical-semantic word- net that is modeled after the Princeton Word- Net for English. The traditional lexicographic development of GermaNet was eror prone and time-consuming, mainly due to a complex underlying data format and no oportunity of automatic consistency checks. GernEdiT re- places the earlier development by a more user- friendly tol, which facilitates automatic checking of internal consistency and corect- nes of the linguistic resource. This paper pre- sents al these core functionalities of GernEdiT along with details about its usage and usabil- ity.
