Towards new information resources for public health - From WordNet to MedicalWordNet

Journal of Biomedical Informatics 39(3): 321-332
Towards new information resources for public health - From WordNet to MedicalWordNet
In the last two decades, WORDNET has evolved as the most comprehensive computational lexicon of general English. In this article, we discuss its potential for supporting the creation of an entirely new kind of information resource for public health, viz. MEDICALWORDNET. This resource is not to be conceived merely as a lexical extension of the original WORDNET to medical terminology; indeed, there is already a considerable degree of overlap between WORDNET and the vocabulary of medicine.
