The UNL Explorer has the following characteristics:

UNL-based Semantic Network Search

Content search is carried out based on UNL Expressions.




Intensional Definition-based Inference

every UW is given an intentional definition to specify its all the essential properties. the definition is used in inference about all concepts it related.
