The focus of this paper is on the work we are carrying out to develop a large semantic database within an Italian national project, SI-TAL, aiming at realizing a set of integrated (compatible) resources and tools for the automatic processing of the Italian language. Within SI-TAL, ItalWordNet is the reference lexical resource which will contain information… (More)
The goal of this paper is to describe how the EuroWordNet framework for representing lexical meaning is being modified within an Italian National Project in order to include information on adjectives. The focus is on the 'new' semantic relations being encoded and on the revisions we have made to the EuroWordNet Top Ontology structure. We also briefly… (More)
This paper describes a work in progress aiming at linking the two largest Italian lexical-semantic databases ItalWordNet and PAROLE-SIMPLE-CLIPS. The adopted linking methodology, the software tool devised and implemented for this purpose and the results of the first mapping phase regarding 1 st OrderEntities are illustrated here.
In the last years, at the Institute for Computational Linguistics in Pisa, a few lexical resources have been developed aiming at encoding complex lexical semantic information. ItalWordNet and SIMPLE are two of these resources which, tackling semantics in the lexicon from different points of view, and being at least partially complementary, could certainly… (More)
Among the resources developed in SI-TAL (Integrated Systems for the Automatic Treatment of Language), ItalWordNet (IWN) was built as reference semantic database, enlarging the Italian WordNet developed in the framework of the European project EuroWordNet (EWN). The Italian lexical database was increased, by introducing and codifying, besides the new… (More)
A research has been carried on and is still in progress aimed at the construction of three specialized lexicons organized as databases of relational type. The three databases contain terms belonging to the specialized knowledge fields of maritime terminology (technical-nautical and maritime transport domain), taxation law, and labour law with union labour… (More)
In the few last years, due to the increasing importance of the web, both computational tools and resources need to be more and more visible and easily accessible to a vast community of scholars, students and researchers. Furthermore, high quality lexical resources are crucially required for a wide range of HLT-NLP applications, among which word sense… (More)
In this paper we refer about the building we are carrying out of a specialized lexicon belonging to the maritime domain, together with the coding performed according to the ItalWordNet semantic relations model. The main characteristics of the lexical semantic database and the specific features of the specialized language are taken into consideration and, in… (More)
