I have installed wordnet package and have checked which binaries were installed with it:

[kuku@fedora23 ~]$ rpm -ql wordnet | grep bin
The usage would be then:

[kuku@fedora23 ~]$ wn

usage: wn word [-hgla] [-n#] -searchtype [-searchtype...]
       wn [-l]

    -h        Display help text before search output
    -g        Display gloss
    -l        Display license and copyright notice
    -a        Display lexicographer file information
    -o        Display synset offset
