GernWeb is the online interface to GermaNet.
GermaNet has been developed and maintained within various projects at the research group
for General and Computational Linguistics (headed by Prof. Dr. Erhard Hinrichs) at the Department of Linguistics
at the University of Tübingen. GermaNet is a lexical-semantic net that relates German nouns, verbs,
and adjectives semantically by grouping them into synsets and by defining
semantic relations between these synsets. GermaNet has much in common with the English
WordNet® and can be viewed as an on-line thesaurus
or a light-weight ontology.
