Citation figures are critical to WordNet funding.
Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms synsets , each expressing a distinct concept. Synsets are interlinked by means of conceptual-semantic and lexical relations. WordNet's structure makes it a useful tool for computational linguistics and natural language processing.

WordNet superficially resembles a thesaurus, in that it groups words together based on their meanings. However, there are some important distinctions.
First, WordNet interlinks not just word forms—strings of letters—but specific senses of words. As a result, words that are found in close proximity to one another in the network are semantically disambiguated. Second, WordNet labels the semantic relations among words, whereas the groupings of words in a thesaurus does not follow any explicit pattern other than meaning similarity.
The main relation among words in WordNet is synonymy, as between the words shut and close or car and automobile. Synonyms--words that denote the same concept and are interchangeable in many contexts--are grouped into unordered sets synsets. Word forms with several distinct meanings are represented in as many distinct synsets. Thus, each form-meaning pair in WordNet is unique.
The most frequently encoded relation among synsets is the super-subordinate relation also called hyperonymy, hyponymy or ISA relation. Thus, WordNet states that the category furniture includes bed, which in turn includes bunkbed; conversely, concepts like bed and bunkbed make up the category furniture. Hyponymy relation is transitive: if an armchair is a kind of chair, and if a chair is a kind of furniture, then an armchair is a kind of furniture. WordNet distinguishes among Types common nouns and Instances specific persons, countries and geographic entities.
Thus, armchair is a type of chair, Barack Obama is an instance of a president. Instances are always leaf terminal nodes in their hierarchies. Parts are inherited from their superordinates: if a chair has legs, then an armchair has legs as well. Abbey abbey n.
