Under the direction of
Noah Porter, D.D., LL.D.
WordNet, a semantic network created by the Cognitive Science Department
of Princeton University under the direction of Prof. George Miller.
It is being updated and supplemented by an open coalition of volunteer
collaborators from around the world.
This electronic dictionary is the starting point for an ongoing project to
develop a modern on-line comprehensive encyclopedic dictionary, by the
efforts of all individuals willing to help build a large and freely
available knowledge base. Contributions of data, time, and effort are
requested from any person willing to assist creation of a comprehensive and
organized knowledge base for free access on the internet. Anyone willing to
assist in any way in constructing such a knowledge base should contact:
