Polish and English wordnets -- statistical analysis of interconnected networks

Maksymilian Bujok, Piotr Fronczak, Agata Fronczak

Wordnets are semantic networks containing nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs organized according to linguistic principles, by means of semantic relations. In this work, we adopt a complex network perspective to perform a comparative analysis of the English and Polish wordnets. We determine their similarities and show that the networks exhibit some of the typical characteristics observed in other real-world networks. We analyse interlingual relations between both wordnets and deliberate over the problem of mapping the Polish lexicon onto the English one.
