Methodology and evaluation of the Galician WordNet expansion with the WN-Toolkit

Xavier Gómez Guinovart, Antoni Oliver


In this paper the methodology and a detailed evaluation of the results of the expansion of the Galician WordNet using the WN-Toolkit are presented. This toolkit allows the creation and expansion of wordnets using the expand model. In our experiments we have used methodologies based on dictionaries and parallel corpora. The evaluation of the results has been performed both in an automatic and in a manual way, allowing a comparison of the precision values obtained with both evaluation procedures. The manual evaluation provides details about the source of the errors. This information has been very useful for the improvement of the toolkit and for the correction of some errors in the reference WordNet for Galician.
