The goal of the project is to enhance the database of the Oxford Dictionary of English (a forthcoming new edition of the 1998 New Oxford Dictionary of English) so that it contains not only the original dictionary content but also additional sets of data formalizing, codifying, and supplementing this content. This will allow the dictionary to be exploited effectively as a resource for computational applications. The Oxford Dictionary of English (ODE) is a high-level dictionary intended for fluent English speakers (especially native speakers) rather than for learners.

This situation is compounded by the fact that many environmental science related terms are confusing. Prefixes such as bio-, enviro-, hydra-, and hydro- are used so frequently that it is often hard to tell the words apart.
This paper presents an algorithm to integrate different lexical resources, through which we hope to overcome the individual inadequacy of the resources, and thus obtain some enriched lexical semantic information for applications such as word sense disambiguation. We used WordNet as a mediator between a conventional dictionary and a thesaurus. Preliminary results support our hypothesised structural relationship, which enables the integration, of the resources. These results also suggest that we can combine the resources to achieve an overall balanced degree of sense discrimination. ...
