Dear all,

The Semantic Computing group at Bielefeld University [1] is happy to announce the first release of an English lexicon for DBpedia in lemon [2] format:


It comprises 1,217 verbalizations covering 353 classes as well as 300 properties (all those that have more than 10,000 occurrences in the DBpedia dataset). It can prove useful for a wide range of ontology-based NLP applications, such as question answering and natural language generation from RDF or SPARQL.

We invite you to browse and use the lexicon, and would love to get feedback.

Also, everyone is welcome to improve the lexicon, extend it, and port it to other languages (we are currently working on an initial version of a Spanish and a German lexicon). The source is available on GitHub:


If you are interested in contributing, we'd be happy to hear from you!

With best regards, Christina
