Usage examples are now extracted and attached to word senses
During the French “TALN” workshop, several French researchers asked me if I could add usage examples in the extracted data. This has been done in French, with the addition of a new property (named
dbnary:exampleSource) that gives the source of the example when available.
The French extractor still shows some problems when examples are splitter on several lines using te HTML br tag, but this is a minor issue (it appears a than sands times on a set of more than 252 thousands usage examples).
Examples in other languages should still be verified. The extraction of English usage examples has been neutralized as the English language edition uses a quite tedious representation involving several lines…
Stay tuned for more/better data, and do not hesitate to go to the forge and submit feature requests or bugs.
