Suplementary notes n.a. Abstract This deliverable describes the EuroWordNet top ontology, the selection of the Base Concepts and the classification of these Base Concepts in terms of the top ontology. Status of the abstract Complete Received on Recipient's catalogue number Executive Summary In this document we describe the EuroWordNet Top Ontology and the(More)
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)
In this paper we describe the creation, we are carrying out of a specialized lexicon belonging to the maritime domain (including the technical and commer-cial/maritime transport domain) and the link of this lexicon to the generic one of the ItalWordNet lexical database. The main characteristics of the lexical semantic database and the specific features of(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)
During the last years, in the framework of Computational Linguistics, many lexical resources have been developed which aim at coding complex lexical semantic information according to different linguistic models (WordNet, Frame Semantics, Generative Lexicon, etc.). However, these resources are often not easily accessible nor available in their entirety. Yet,(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)
