A hierarchical network of meanings of 14,980 Slovene verbs is described and discussed. The network enables search and the retrieval in two directions. First, from each individual verb all different meaning groups into which the verb is classified can be obtained; and second, from any node in the hierarchy of meaning groups all verbs associated with it can be retrieved. An overview of the German and English meaning groups of verbs is given. Specific features, advantages and disadvantages of the proposed scheme of meanings are outlined.
