WordNet

(human language)
A large lexical database of English, developed under the direction of George A. Miller. Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms ("synsets"), each expressing a distinct concept. Synsets are interlinked by means of conceptual-semantic and lexical relations. The resulting network of words and concepts can be navigated with the browser. WordNet is freely available for download. WordNet's structure makes it a useful tool for computational linguistics and natural language processing.

Cada synset se etiqueta con uno o varios de los dominios de una taxonomia de dominios de ambito general denominada WordNet Domains (Bentivogli, Forner, Magnini, & Pianta, 2004; Bernardo Magnini & Cavaglia, 2000; B.
