What happens if you run wordnet in a terminal?

Hi, take a look at this Wordnet reference and this, I think you're trying to use wordnet in the wrong way. Kind regards

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
    -s        Display sense numbers in synsets
    -n#        Search only sense number #

searchtype is at least one of the following:
    -ants{n|v|a|r}        Antonyms
    -hype{n|v}        Hypernyms
    -hypo{n|v}, -tree{n|v}    Hyponyms & Hyponym Tree
