This dictionary was derived from the Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary Version published 1913 by the C. & G. Merriam Co. Springfield, Mass. Under the direction of Noah Porter, D.D., LL.D.

and from WordNet, a semantic network created by the Cognitive Science Department of Princeton University under the direction of Prof. George Miller

and is being updated and supplemented by an open coalition of volunteer collaborators from around the world.

This electronic dictionary is the starting point for an ongoing project to develop a modern on-line comprehensive encyclopedic dictionary, by the efforts of all individuals willing to help build a large and freely available knowledge base. Contributions of data, time, and effort are requested from any person willing to assist creation of a comprehensive and organized knowledge base for free access on the internet. Anyone willing to assist in any way in constructing such a knowledge base should contact:
