Access to lexical databases

OpenLexicon: Easy access to lexical databases

At OpenLexicon, you will find:

  1. a directory of lexical databases
  2. scripts to query, manipulate or create lexical databases.
  3. apps to create dynamic graphical interfaces to the lexical databases.
  4. documents of interest related to the processing of lexical resources.


Everybody is warmly encouraged to contribute, by adding a database, an app, or a script. First, check out Lexique’s google-group at!forum/lexiqueorg. You can then contact and 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).

Most databases have associated publications listed in their respective README files. They must be cited in any derivative work! The same goes for some of the scripts (read their documentation for instructions).
