Perl interface to the WordNet database files

From the README

WordNetQueryData provides a direct interface to the WordNet database files. It requires the WordNet package http//www.cogsci.princeton.edu/~wn/. It allows the user direct access to the full WordNet semantic lexicon. All parts of speech are supported and access is generally very efficient because the index and morphical exclusion tables are loaded at initialization. This initialization step is slow appx. 10-15 seconds, but queries are very fast thereafter—thousands of queries can be completed every second.
