OpenLexicon: Easy access to lexical databases
At OpenLexicon, you will find:
- a directory of lexical databases
- scripts to query, manipulate or create lexical databases.
- apps to create dynamic graphical interfaces to the lexical databases.
- documents of interest related to the processing of lexical resources.
- To add a new dataset, add a
datasets-info/; check out How-to-install-a-new-dataset.
- Some of the apps provide the infrastructure of http://www.lexique.org where many of lexical databases are hosted and can be queried on-line — check out, for example, http://www.lexique.org/shiny/openlexicon.
- To automatically download datasets, you can use fetch_datasets.R
Everybody is warmly encouraged to contribute, by adding a database, an app, or a script.
First, check out Lexique’s google-group at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/lexiqueorg. You can then contact
email@example.com privately, or, much better, fork the
openlexicon repository (see How to fork a repo) and issue a pull request (see Creating a pull request from a fork).
Check out the TODO list
Most databases have associated publications listed in their respective
files. They must be cited in any derivative work! The same goes for some of the
scripts (read their documentation for instructions).
If needed, you can cite this repository as:
