Dear list members,

we are pleased to announce the public release of version 1.0 of our Web
Corpus and Topic Signatures for all WordNet 1.6 Nominal Senses. These
resources were first presented at LREC 2004 (Agirre and Lopez de
Lacalle, 2004), but we have updated and revised them.

They have been succesfully used for a variety of tasks including word
sense disambiguation (Agirre and Martinez, 2004), measuring simmilarity
among word senses (Agirre et al. 2004) and clustering word senses
(Agirre and Lopez de Lacalle, 2003).

These resources can be downloaded and browsed from the following url:

Comments and feedback is most welcome.
