UBY - A Large-Scale Unified Lexical-Semantic Resource

UBY is a large-scale lexical-semantic resource for natural language processing (NLP) based on the ISO standard Lexical Markup Framework (LMF). UBY combines a wide range of information from expert-constructed and collaboratively constructed resources for English and German. Currently, UBY integrates 12 resources in two languages by linking them pairwise at the word sense level:

Most UBY related software is developed open source on GitHub.

We offer UBY databases with open resources for download:

There is also a Semantic Web version of UBY called lemonUby, created in collaboration with John McCrae (CITEC, Universität Bielefeld) and Christian Chiarcos (ACoLi, Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main). Find out more on the lemonUby website.



We provide a commented list of  selected UBY related publications on the Publications page.


UBY contains interoperable lexicons represented in a standard-compliant format called UBY-LMF.

Visual Browser

The UBY Web Interface is currently being revised. Find out more about the redesign of the visualization component - the Visual Browser.
