    Default find the link between two words by using wordnet

    Hi,

    I need to search the relation between two words, this is find what type of connection (hyperonim, hyponim,...) exists between both them. what I was doing until now was to get the direct hyperonims, hyponims of one of those words and search the other word in these lists. But I need to know if those words are relationed in certain way (although not with a direct link), but I cannot load all of those list (searching first the direct hyperonims, then the hypernonims of those hypernonims...) in memory because is too slow (and my program is already too heavy to run). I was wondering if there was a method to do something like this:

    oneWord.findRelation(theOtherWord) and get something like this: hyperonim (indicating the first word is a hyperonim of the second one)

    thank you in advance and sorry for my poor English

    I maybe need the way to find the path between two nodes in wordnet (both words). I dont know if bringing the synsets of those two words, I can find the path o relation between them.

    Thank you

    The point is that I was wondering if this method was implemented in the wordnet API, because otherwise I suppose I needed to implement a recursive method, right?

    Is this a question about how to use a third party product?

    I was asking this because I want to find somebody with a similar problem. I am programming with Java and if nobody can help me by providing me a solution with any wordnet method o any implementation, I would like to know not how to do a recursive method, but the way that this recursive method will affect to my program running. In fact, with each loop of the recursive method I would getting a big list of strings and for each obtained word would have to repeat the same process up to the level I want to achieve the hyperonims and the hyponims. I dont know if this way will not make my program to run too slow. because of this, I wanted to know if somebody had been working with wordnet and had had a similar problem and overall, if there is maybe another way to achieve this using the wordnet api, maybe with graphs algorithms or something like that.

    thank you

    Sorry, I can't help you. I've never heard of wordnet.

    I don't have the answer, but I can point you in the direction of related code.
    A Californian programmer, Sujit Pal, has published a series of articles on datamining: jtmt - Java Text Mining Toolkit
    The file where he connects with Wordnet is ContentWordRecognizer.java.
    It is in the contribution of september 20, 2008.
