Dear all,

We have published a beta version of the RDF version of Princeton's 
Wordnet 3.0 at


We hope that this can version can quickly develop into a stable resource 
for the LOD community, and therefore request your comments and 
feedback.  If you have any concrete tips for improvements or additions, 
please let us know.

This new conversion has been made by Mark van Assem and colleagues, 
using an updated version of the same software that was used to create 
the 2.0 version hosted by W3C [1].  We again aim at a complete 
conversion of the original data published by Princeton (a.k.a the "full" 
version), and have retained the option to choose the more light weight 
"basic" version (see [1]) for details).

We would like to have the RDF schema and uri scheme stable as soon as 
possible, so if you have suggestions in this area, please let us know 
a.s.a.p.  The mappings to Wordnet 2.0 and other related resources are 
still work in progress, as is a SKOS-compliant version.
