The package WordNet is now available with the Cygwin distribution:
* http://www.cogsci.princeton.edu/~wn/ (Homepage)
* ftp://ftp.cogsci.princeton.edu/pub/wordnet/2.0/ (Download location)
WordNet is an online lexical reference system. Word forms in WordNet are
represented in their familiar orthography; word meanings are represented
by synonym sets (synsets) - lists of synonymous word forms that are
interchangeable in some context. Two kinds of relations are recognized:
lexical and semantic. Lexical relations hold between word forms; semantic
relations hold between word meanings.
This package has a command-line and a Tcl/Tk interface included.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Text"
and then click on the appropriate fields until the above announced
version numbers appear if they are not displayed already.
If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror.
