Analysis of Community-based Dictionaries

This a hobby of Amaç Herdağdelen and me: We download community-based on-line dictionaries, like Ekşi Sözlük and İTÜ Sözlük, and then we analyze their hyper-textual structure and semantic content to extract interesting information. By this means, we were able to guess the sexes of the users, detect sub-communities, suggest relevant pages, predict the growth of the dictionary... And, there are a lot more to do.
