**** GermaNet Release 12.0 ****

We are pleased to announce the availability of a new version of GermaNet (release 12.0).

GermaNet is a lexical-semantic net that relates German nouns, verbs, and adjectives semantically by grouping lexical units that express the same concept into synsets and by defining semantic relations between these synsets. GermaNet has much in common with the English WordNet (http://wordnet.princeton.edu) and can be viewed as an on-line thesaurus or a light-weight ontology.

GermaNet has been developed and maintained within various projects by the research group for General and Computational Linguistics (Director: Prof. Dr. Erhard Hinrichs) at the University of Tübingen since 1997.

The most important extensions to this GermaNet release compared to the previous release are:

1: New synsets and lexical units for all word classes (adjectives, nouns, and verbs) have been added, resulting in 12,000 additional lexical units.

2: New relations between synsets have been added.
