    Hello, I am new to JWNL. I have downloaded the jar files and added to my project's Build Path in Eclipse. What is the next step? What 'import' statement do I need to use in order to get access to the class methods. For a given word, I need to get the singular or the plural of that word. Any help woul be appreciated.

      Before anything, install WordNet and see if wn (from the command line) lets you do what you want it to.  It doesn't look like it though:


      WordNet stems its query words to singular form using its own word stem function, but the function is only one-way.  In other words, there's no WordNet function that can take "child" and return "children", and due to the way it works if there was one then it would return a lot of nonsensical results like "childes".
