Title CASSAurus: A Resource of Simpler Spanish Synonyms
Authors Ricardo Baeza-Yates, Luz Rello and Julia Dembowski
Abstract In this work we introduce and describe a language resource composed of lists of simpler synonyms for Spanish. The synonyms are divided in different senses taken from the Spanish OpenThesaurus, where context disambiguation was performed by using statistical information from the Web and Google Books Ngrams. This resource is freely available online and can be used for different NLP tasks such as lexical simplification. Indeed, so far it has been already integrated into four tools.
