Yuri Bizzoni, Federico Boschetti, Harry Diakoff, Riccardo DelGratta, Monica Monachini, Gregory Crane, The Making of Ancient Greek WordNet.

This paper describes the process of creation and review of a new lexico-semantic resource for the classical studies: AncientGreekWord-Net. The candidate sets of synonyms (synsets) are extracted from Greek-English dictionaries, on the assumption that Greek words translated by the same English word or phrase have a high probability of being synonyms or at least semantically closely related. The process of validation and the web interface developed to edit and query the resource are described in detail. The lexical coverage of Ancient Greek WordNet is illustrated and the accuracy is evaluated. Finally, scenarios for exploiting the resource are discussed.
