Dear list members,
To my question concerning content based word categories, I received the following suggestions.
My question was: For my thesis concerning an electronic dictionary for second language learners, I am looking for content based categories of nouns, verbs, adjectives and nouns. Who knows where I can find such categories?
Thanks for your reactions,
All senses are coded into semantic categories as part of a "SmartThesaurus", and naturally all senses are also categorised grammatically.
For reviewing an electronic dictionary containing such data: for £15 buy the CD-ROM, see <http://dictionary.cambridge.org/cald/cdrom>.
Wordsmyth Children's Dictionary, at http://www.wordsmyth.net. Some entries have word relations data, called "Word Explorer" - for example, the entry for "emotion".
CELEX. has few types of nouns and verbs, but gives frequency estimates for each.
Verbs and nouns divided into "synsets" in the WordNet files: http://www.cogsci.princeton.edu/~wn/
Princeton WordNet (English)
BalkaNet (several Middle and East European languages)
