Dear all,

At the following address you can find a description of the so-called Top-40
Concepts (which actually are 164 synsets):

I have cleaned the older list (which some of you have seen) and I added some
explanation. In this version you can link to the WordNet1.5 classification
(hierarchy tree) or the EuroWordNet top-ontology classification by following
the links with your browser. You can also download the files but make sure
that all files are in the same directory to follow the classification links.

I hope this gives a better explanation of what we are trying in EuroWordNet
and what the use of this data is.

best wishes,
