Finding a sense of word in a text

P: n/a
Dear all,

This might be off group but I am looking for a python library that can
help me to find a sense of a word in a text and eventually a list of
synonyms of that term. I searched the web and found one but it is
written in perl (http://www.d.umn.edu/~tpederse/senserelate.html) :(

I appreciate any pointers.

Thank you before hand.

Kind regards,

Sengly

Search for terms like text mining and NLP.

Thanks a lot everyone. I appreciate your suggestion.

But still, I could not find a simple way using wordnet since each term
might have several part of speech and each one of them can have many
senses. What I want is simply the list of synonyms of each term with
their popularity score in English text.

Once again, thank you.

Best regards,
