Abstract

This demo introduces a suite of web-based English lexical knowledge resources, called StringNet and StringNet Navigator (http://nav.stringnet.org), designed to provide access to the immense territory of multiword expressions that falls between what the lexical entries encode in lexicons on the one hand and what productive grammar rules cover on the other. StringNet's content consists of 1.6 billion hybrid n-grams, strings in which word forms and parts of speech grams can cooccur. Subordinate and super-ordinate relations among hybrid n-grams are indexed, making StringNet a navigable web rather than a list. Applications include error detection and correction tools and web browser-based tools that detect patterns in the webpages that a user browses.
