WordNet::Similarity — Measuring the Relatedness of Concepts

Ted Pedersen, Siddharth Patwardhan, and Jason Michelizzi

WordNet::Similarity is a freely available software package that makes it possible to measure the semantic similarity or relatedness between a pair of concepts (or word senses). It provides six measures of similarity, and three measures of relatedness, all of which are based on the lexical database WordNet. These measures are implemented as Perl modules which take as input two concepts, and return a numeric value that represents the degree to which they are similar or related.
