Abstract

The long-term goal of the research described in this paper is to develop a multilingual language resource linked to the Princeton WordNet. The paper describes the experiments we are conducing for determining a basic vocabulary and for designing a language-independent core for the future resource. More precisely, in this paper we use the universality of the Swadesh list [15] for selecting it as a basic core vocabulary and we present several options for designing a minimal upper ontology underlying the list.
