BabelNet is both a multilingual encyclopedic dictionary, with lexicographic and encyclopedic coverage of terms, and a semantic network which connects concepts and named entities in a very large network of semantic relations, made up of more than 9 million entries, called Babel synsets. Each Babel synset represents a given meaning and contains all the synonyms which express that meaning in a range of different languages.

BabelNet is provided as a stand-alone resource with its Java API, a SPARQL endpoint and a Linked Data interface as part of the Linguistic Linked Open Data (LLOD) cloud.

Classicists will find BabelNet interesting for its incorporation of Latin words.
