The estimation of lexical semantic relatedness has numerous applications in NLP. Several measures are available for the evaluation of lexical semantic relatedness. This paper presents two approaches for measuring semantic similarity/distance between words and concepts with the help of WordNet-Telugu. The edge-based approach of the edge counting scheme and the node-based approach of the information content calculation have been explored. In the field of concepts, the measure of Wu and Palmer has
