Cornetto Demo

There are two demos for Cornetto:

– 1. The database browser in a Firefox client
– 2. The word and relations acquisition demo

The database browser allows you to view the data currently in the Cornetto database. See the Disclaimer for terms and conditions governing the access provided. See User Manual for further information on installation and use of the Cornetto Demo, or contact us in case you have any further questions. The data of the final results of the Cornetto project are available through the TST-centrale of the Nederlandse Taalunie.
The acquisition demo can be accessed through Instructions are included.
Finally, Erwin Marsi kindly provided another interface to the Cornetto datase that incorporates also word similarity calculation. This demo can be accessed from

User Manual

Installation of the Cornetto Client

The Cornetto client is a plugin for the Mozilla Firefox web browser. Since Mozilla continuously releases updates for Firefox, the client will not work in recent versions. Since the project ended, there is no support to keep updating the client. We therefore prepared a portable version of Firefox with the client already installed for Windows users. You can run this version from the USB stick or you can copy it to a local drive. When launching the portable version, you will by-pass the version that is installed on your machine. Do the following (this only works for Windows):

– 1. Download the following ZIP file:
– 2. Unzip the file on a D-drive or your USB-stick.
– 3. Start Mozilla Firefox by double clicking the .exe file within the unpacked folder
– 4. Follow the instructions described in Installation instructions for a portable Cornetto client.

We appreciate your feedback on the Cornetto database at any stage of the project. Please email piek.vossen (at) for technical problems or general feedback.
