This paper describes the first version of the Multilingual Central Repository, a lexical knowledge base developed in the framework of the MEANING project. Currently the MCR integrates into the EuroWordNet framework five local wordnets (including four versions of the English WordNet from Princeton), an upgraded version of the EuroWordNet Top Concept ontology, the MultiWordNet Domains, the Suggested Upper Merged Ontology (SUMO) and hundreds of thousand of new semantic relations and properties automatically acquired from corpora. We believe that the resulting MCR will be the largest and richest Multilingual Lexical Knowledge Base in existence.
