Mobile plWordNet is used to browse Polish Wordnet and Princeton Wordnet. It provides Thesaurus, description of the semantic relations between words, definitions of meaning. It is a part of Słowosieć project. Application allows searching words and also following the word connections. All words are connected by ten types of relations. You can browse two dictionaries: Polish Słowosieć and Princeton Wordnet.
Mobile plWordNet can be used OFFLINE but it is necessary to download database. It is recommended to have the newest version of database (app provides updates). It requires 85MB of data to be downloaded and 223MB after unpacking on your device.
NOTE! Database for Mobile plWordNet is quite big, we suggest using stable connection (like WiFi)!

Wordnet is the biggest Polish wordnet. A wordnet is a semantic network, whose nodes are lexical units, while threads connecting the whole - semantic relations between lexical units. Those semantic relations are for instance
hypernymy/hyponymy = a relation which links a word of a more general meaning (kot – 'cat') with a word of a more specific meaning (tygrys – 'tiger') (every tiger belongs to the feline family); meronymy/holonymy = a relation denoting a part and a whole, e.g. zderzak - 'bumper' – samochód - 'car' (cars have bumpers); antonymy - a relation of the semantic opposition, e.g. wejść – 'enter' – wyjść - 'leave', żonaty – 'married' – kawaler -'bachelor' (a detailed list of lexical relations is given here [link]. Lexical units which enter the same lexico-semantic relations (but not the same derivational relations) are treated as synonyms and linked into synsets that is synonym sets.
The first ever wordnet (WordNet) was built in 1980s at Princeton University. Since that time hundreds of research teams have started the construction of wordnets for different languages, and among them our Languages Technologies Research Group G.4.19 at Wrocław University of Technology. In 2009 the first version of plWordNet was made available on the Internet. Similarly to its predecessor – Princeton WordNet – the current 2.0 version of plWordNet is available on the open licence
