HurtLex is a multilingual computational lexicon of hate words. Starting from the Italian lexicon ''Le Parole per Ferire'' by Tullio de Mauro, we developed a computational lexicon and semi-automatically translated it into more than 50 languages.

The development of HurtLex is described in this paper:
