WordNet® is an on-line lexical reference system whose design is inspired by current psycholinguistic theories of human lexical memory. English nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are organized into synonym sets, each representing one underlying lexical concept. Different relations link the synonym sets.

WordNet was developed by the Cognitive Science Laboratory at Princeton University under the direction of Professor George A. Miller (Principal Investigator).

"WordNet: An Electronic Lexical Database" is now available from MIT Press.

The WordNetTreeWalk package includes an alternative tree-based browser to view the information from the WordNet 3.0 database to be found in the standard Princeton release.

The package also provides tools for new applications (see details). It runs only on Win32 platforms.


WordNet TreeWalk (wntw for short) should not be confused with the browser to be found in the Princeton standard release package. WordNet TreeWalk has been developed independently and Princeton cannot be held responsible for it (support, queries, ...).  Please send queries about the contents of the database to Princeton, the rest has to be sent to the following email address :
