    Abstract

    As part of a project to construct an interactive program which would encourage children to play with language by building jokes, we developed a lexical database, starting from WordNet. To the existing information about part of speech, synonymy, hyponymy, etc., we have added phonetic representations and phonetic similarity ratings for pairs of words/phrases.
