In this paper we present Text2Onto, a framework for on-tology learning from textual resources. Three main features distinguish Text2Onto from our earlier framework TextToOnto as well as other state-of-the-art ontology learning frameworks. First, by representing the learned knowledge at a meta-level in the form of instantiated model-ing primitives within a(More)
While much of a company's knowledge can be found in text repositories, current content management systems have limited capabilities for structuring and interpreting documents. In the emerging Semantic Web, search, interpretation and aggregation can be addressed by ontology-based semantic markup. In this paper, we examine semantic annotation, identify a(More)
We present a novel approach to the automatic acquisition of taxonomies or concept hierarchies from a text corpus. The approach is based on Formal Concept Analysis (FCA), a method mainly used for the analysis of data, i.e. for investigating and processing explicitly given information. We follow Harris' distributional hypothesis and model the context of a(More)
Keyword queries enjoy widespread usage as they represent an intuitive way of specifying information needs. Recently, answering keyword queries on graph-structured data has emerged as an important research topic. The prevalent approaches build on dedicated indexing techniques as well as search algorithms aiming at finding substructures that connect the data(More)
Without the proliferation of formal semantic annotations, the Semantic Web is certainly doomed to failure. In earlier work we presented a new paradigm to avoid this: the 'Self Annotating Web', in which globally available knowledge is used to annotate resources such as web pages. In particular, we presented a concrete method instantiating this paradigm,(More)
Irony is an important device in human communication , both in everyday spoken conversations as well as in written texts including books, websites, chats, reviews, and Twitter messages among others. Specific cases of irony and sarcasm have been studied in different contexts but, to the best of our knowledge, only recently the first publicly available corpus(More)
The goal of giving a well-defined meaning to information is currently shared by endeavors such as the Semantic Web as well as by current trends within Knowledge Management. They all depend on the large-scale formalization of knowledge and on the availability of formal metadata about information resources. However, the question how to provide the necessary(More)
As an increasing amount of RDF data is published as Linked Data, intuitive ways of accessing this data become more and more important. Question answering approaches have been proposed as a good compromise between intuitiveness and expressivity. Most question answering systems translate questions into triples which are matched against the RDF data to(More)
