Etymological definitions in the English version of Wiktionary are particularly well compiled and contain a very rich set of information hindering binary, i.e., etymological, relationships between words, e.g., “word A derives from word B, word B derives from word C, etc”. The etytree project (http://tools.wmflabs.org/etytree/) extracts this information into a database of triples or data entities composed of subject-predicate-object (where a possible predicate is “derives from”). The project uses this database to create an intuitive and multilingual graphical etymology dictionary. Potentially, the tool can be integrated into Wikidata when the Wikidata-for-Wiktionary proposal turns into production.
