Would you like to understand how lexical data power the development of chatbots?

WITMO - What Is The Meaning Of is a Facebook Messenger dictionary chatbot which allows you to search for the definitions of English words. It also provides synonyms, antonyms, and examples, being a handy tool for anyone learning English.
