The selection of papers for this Special Issue is intended to cover a broad set of topics in the fields of collective intelligence and language resources, such as (1) the use of crowdsourcing to generate training data for machine learning algorithms, (2) the use of web-based platforms to collaboratively annotate linguistic corpora, (3) the semi-automatic construction of lexical semantic resources through mining Wiktionary, and (4) the construction of a word sense inventory with results from Amazon Mechanical Turk and using it for a lexical substitution task. Although the papers in this special issue cannot cover the full range of current research involving CCLRs because of limited space, the topics represent a broad sample that should provide an ample taste of work in the field.
