News & Updates

Minor Update: MOW 0.1.3

14 Jun 2017

MOW 0.1.3 is a minor update, covering around a hundred more synsets. It can be accessed in the Open Multilingual Wordnet (OMW).

(The version used by the Simple Browser is still currently 0.1.1)

Update: MOW 0.1.2

24 May 2017

We've just uploaded MOW 0.1.2 onto the Open Multilingual Wordnet (OMW). Coverage-wise, it is identical to 0.1.1, but 0.1.2 includes romanised and ASCII-friendly variant spellings, so you can now search on OMW using:

  • Myanmar Language Commission Transcription System (MLCTS)
  • “MLCTS 2”, a version used in the Myanmar-English Dictionary published by the MLC
  • Two other simplified systems, “Simple” and “Simple2”. We based them on MLCTS2 and MLCTS respectively. More on these soon!

Unfortunately at the moment, the Simple Browser does not support this version.

Simple Browser

03 May 2017

There is now a simple browser for MOW (v0.1.1). It's very barebones at the moment, but it's probably better than nothing! ;)

Go check it out! (opens a new window)

Initial release is here!

12 April 2017

MOW is now part of the Open Multilingual Wordnet (OMW). This also marks the initial release (v.0.1) of MOW!

This is an early, preliminary release meant to begin integration with the OMW. As such, it's not available for download. Nevertheless, you can still access it by browsing the OMW itself. The data therein is still open and can be freely used.

We will have a next release soon (downloadable!). As always, it will be open, and can be freely used, modified, distributed and shared by anyone, for any purpose. This website will also be updated with more information and news regarding the MOW and its progress.

Stay tuned!
