Lexical resources for medical language, such as lists of words with inflectional and derivational information, are publicly available for the English lantuate with the UMLS Specialist Lexicon. The goal of the UMLF project is to pool and unify existing resources and to add extensively to them by exploiting medical terminologies and corpora, resulting in a Unified Medical Lexicon for French. We present here the current status of the project.
