SemCor: semantically annotated English corpus
The SemCor corpus is an English corpus with semantically annotated texts. The semantic analysis was done manually with WordNet 1.6 senses (SemCor version 1.6) and later automatically mapped to WordNet 3.0 (SemCor version 3.0). The SemCorpus corpus consists of 352 texts from Brown corpus.
This sense-tagged corpus SemCor 3.0 was automatically created from SemCor 1.6 by mapping WordNet 1.6 to WordNet 3.0 senses. SemCor 1.6 was created and is property of Princeton University. The automatic mapping was performed by Rada Mihalcea (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The corpus has also multi-word expressions (MWE) marked with underscore (_), e.g. manor_house. These multi-word units were annotated by Siva Reddy.
SemCor was tagged by TreeTagger using Penn TreeBank tagset.
