Development of a unified graph-theoretical system for acquiring lexico-semantic phenomena. The meaning of a word crucially depends on the relationships it has with other words. The goal of the project is to develop intuitive and flexible methods that enable us to model lexical semantics using words and their relationships in diverse linguistic contexts. Our main representational formalism is graph-theoretical which is naturally suited to represent (i) words as nodes and (ii) relationships between words as edges.
