Mapping Wordnet, RelEx to OpenCog

I spent the afternoon creating a formalized mapping from RelEx and Wordnet to OpenCog. The goal is to clean things up enough so that I can run word-sense disambiguation code with opencog itself. Now, one thing that was nagging me is that this is, in some sense, the hard-way forward — I could just download Rada Mihalcea’s WSD code from off the net, and just run that. But this misses the point: I want to have the network graph of word senses within opencog so that I can start trying to resolve senses across multiple sentences, and thus, potentially do document-level word-sense detection. So I’m pretty excited by the approach, but it sure does feel like re-inventing the wheel,. sometimes. I hope to post the spec to opencog-discuss in a few days.
