We are pleased to announce the release of a large corpus of sense-annotated textual definitions for 263 languages. To the best of our knowledge, this is the largest available corpus of its kind, with more than 38 million definitions from various resources (WordNet, Wikipedia, Wikidata, Open Multilingual WordNet, Wiktionary and OmegaWiki) and almost 250 million sense annotations. All definitions have been automatically disambiguated by exploiting at best their cross-language and cross-resource complementarities using BabelNet (http://babelnet.org), the largest multilingual encyclopedic dictionary and semantic network, Babelfy, a state-of-the-art multilingual Word Sense Disambiguation and Entity Linking system (http://babelfy.org), and the semantic vector representations of NASARI (http://lcl.uniroma1.it/nasari).

We release two different versions of the corpus, both stored in easy-to-process XML files divided by language and resource. The first version (“complete”) has been fully disambiguated for all content words and named entities with an estimated precision above 75% for most languages. The second version (“high-precision”) has a reduced coverage (around 65% for all content words and 75% for noun instances) but a higher precision (estimated above 90%).

All the resources are freely available for download at http://lcl.uniroma1.it/disambiguated-glosses
