Brazilian Portuguese needs a Wordnet that is open access, downloadable and changeable, sothat it can be improved by the community interested in using it for knowledge representationand automated deduction. This kind of resource is also very valuable to linguists and computerscientists interested in extracting and representing knowledge obtained from texts. We discussbriefly the reasons for a Brazilian Portuguese Wordnet and the process we used to get apreliminary version of such a resource. Then we discuss possible steps to improving ourpreliminary version.
