FreeLing is an open-source open-source multilingual
language processing library providing a wide
range of language analyzers for several languages.
It offers text processing and language annotation facilities
to natural language processing application
developers, simplifying the task of building those
applications. FreeLing is customizable and extensible.
Developers can use the default linguistic resources
(dictionaries, lexicons, grammars, etc.) directly,
or extend them, adapt them to specific domains,
or even develop new ones for specific languages.
This paper presents the semantic services included
in FreeLing, which are based on WordNet and EuroWordNet
databases. The recent release of the
UKB program under a GPL license made it possible
to integrate a long awaited word sense disambiguation
module into FreeLing. UKB provides state of
the art all-words sense disambiguation for any language
with an available WordNet.
