|The Biology Taboo Wiktionary: A tool for improving student comprehension of key terminology in introductory biology courses||Olimpo J.T.
|The Plugged-In Professor: Tips and Techniques for Teaching with Social Media||English||2013||Knowledge of terminology and understanding of processes and concepts is a key foundational requirement in many disciplines. Learning a new disciplinary "language" is often a challenge for novice students, yet a strong foundation is essential for success in the major. This activity utilizes an in-class version of the commercial game Taboo©, in which students must define disciplinary terms in their own words, and without obvious terms. The in-class game is followed by a collaborative wiki, which provides students with an interactive opportunity to review and describe new terminology, and concepts. The goal of these activities is not only to develop a deeper appreciation for, and understanding of, the connections present between various biological processes, but to achieve a foundational understanding of the discipline. The wiki also serves as a resource to prepare for the final exam or to complete laboratory reports. © 2013 Woodhead Publishing Limited. All rights reserved.||0||0|
|Avoimen suomenkielisen morfologian liittäminen Wikimedian hakujärjestelmään||Niklas Laxström||University of Helsinki||Finnish||1 January 2012||In my thesis I investigated the feasibility of using a Finnish morphology implementation with the Lucene search system. With the same Lucene-search package that is used by the Wikimedia Foundation I built two search indexes: one with the existing Porter stemming algorithm and the other one with morphological analysis. The corpus I used was the current text dump of Finnish Wikipedia. [...] See http://laxstrom.name/blag/2012/02/13/exploring-the-states-of-open-source-search-stack-supporting-finnish/||9||0|
|Zawilinski: Helping beginning programmers conduct mediawiki-based research||Zachary Kurmas||Annual Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education, ITiCSE||English||2012||Zawilinski is our Java library that helps undergraduates conduct research on Wikipedia and Wiktionary. It simplifies the loading and filtering MediaWiki XML dumps so that the resulting object tree will fit into the memory of a typical PC, thereby eliminating the need for advanced programming techniques to access Wikipedia and Wiktionary data.||0||0|
|Multilingual Ontology Matching based on Wiktionary Data Accessible via SPARQL Endpoint||Feiyu Lin
|Proceedings of the 13th Russian Conference on Digital Libraries RCDL’2011||English||2011||Interoperability is a feature required by the Semantic Web. It is provided by the ontology matching methods and algorithms. But now ontologies are presented not only in English, but in other languages as well. It is important to use an automatic translation for obtaining correct matching pairs in multilingual ontology matching. The translation into many languages could be based on the Google Translate API, the Wiktionary database, etc. From the point of view of the balance of presence of many languages, of manually crafted translations, of a huge size of a dictionary, the most promising resource is the Wiktionary. It is a collaborative project working on the same principles as the Wikipedia. The parser of the Wiktionary was developed and the machine-readable dictionary was designed. The data of the machine-readable Wiktionary are stored in a relational database, but with the help of D2R server the database is presented as an RDF store. Thus, it is possible to get lexicographic information (definitions, translations, synonyms) from web service using SPARQL requests. In the case study, the problem entity is a task of multilingual ontology matching based on Wiktionary data accessible via SPARQL endpoint. Ontology matching results obtained using Wiktionary were compared with results based on Google Translate API.||5||0|
|Semi-automatic enrichment of crowdsourced synonymy networks: the WISIGOTH system applied to Wiktionary||Franck Sajous
|Language Resources and Evaluation||English||2011||Semantic lexical resources are a mainstay of various Natural Language Processing applications. However, comprehensive and reliable resources are rare and not often freely available. Handcrafted resources are too costly for being a general solution while automatically-built resources need to be validated by experts or at least thoroughly evaluated. We propose in this paper a picture of the current situation with regard to lexical resources, their building and their evaluation. We give an in-depth description of Wiktionary, a freely available and collaboratively built multilingual dictionary. Wiktionary is presented here as a promising raw resource for NLP. We propose a semi-automatic approach based on random walks for enriching Wiktionary synonymy network that uses both endogenous and exogenous data. We take advantage of the wiki infrastructure to propose a validation “by crowds”. Finally, we present an implementation called WISIGOTH, which supports our approach.||7||0|
|Encouraging language students to contribute inflection data to Wiktionary||Zachary Kurmas||WikiSym||English||2010||We propose building a computer program to simplify access to the inflection (i.e., “word ending”) data in Wiktionary. This program will make it easier to both (1) look up a word’s inflections and, more importantly, (2) edit incorrect inflections. We expect that such a program will encourage foreign language students to both use Wiktionary as a resource and contribute inflection and other grammar data toWiktionary. We believe that the resulting additional activity will make Wiktionary a better resource for students — especially students of those languages for which there are no cheap, comprehensive inflection resources — and provide data that will be beneficial to the wiki research community||1||0|
|Zawilinski: A library for studying grammar in wiktionary||Zachary Kurmas||WikiSym 2010||English||2010||We present Zawilinski, a Java library that supports the extraction and analysis of grammatical data in Wiktionary. Zawilinski can efficiently (1) filter Wiktionary for content pertaining to a specified language, and (2) extract a word's inflections from its Wiktionary entry. We have thus far used Zawilinski to (1) measure the correctness of the inflections for a subset of the Polish words in the English Wiktionary and to (2) show that this grammatical data is very stable. (Only 131 out of 4748 Polish words have had their inflection data corrected.) We also explain Zawilinski's key features and discuss how it can be used to simplify the development of additional grammar-based analyses.||0||2|

|Related terms search based on WordNet / Wiktionary and its application in Ontology Matching||Feiyu Lin Andrew Krizhanovsky||RCDL||2009||A set of ontology matching algorithms (for finding correspondences between concepts) is based on a thesaurus that provides the source data for the semantic distance calculations. In this wiki era, new resources may spring up and improve this kind of semantic search. In the paper a solution of this task based on Russian Wiktionary is compared to WordNet based algorithms. Metrics are estimated using the test collection, containing 353 English word pairs with a relatedness score assigned by human evaluators. The experiment shows that the proposed method is capable in principle of calculating a semantic distance between pair of words in any language presented in Russian Wiktionary. The calculation of Wiktionary based metric had required the development of the open-source Wiktionary parser software.||0||0|
|Using the Wiktionary graph structure for synonym detection||Timothy Weale
|People’s Web Meets||English||2009||This paper presents our work on using the graph structure of Wiktionary for synonym detection. We implement semantic relatedness metrics using both a direct measure of information flow on the graph and a comparison of the list of vertices found to be “close” to a given vertex. Our algorithms, evaluated on ESL 50, TOEFL 80 and RDWP 300 data sets, perform better than or comparable to existing semantic relatedness measures.||5||1|
