SPRAT : a tool for automatic semantic pattern-based ontology population
SPRAT combines aspects from traditional named entity recognition, ontology-based information extraction and relation extraction, in order to identify patterns for the extraction of a variety of entity types and relations between them, and to re-engineer them into concepts and instances in an ontology.
SIMPLE: A General Framework for the Development of Multilingual Lexicons
The project LE-SIMPLE is an innovative attempt of building harmonized syntactic-semantic lexicons for twelve European languages, aimed at use in different Human Language Technology applications.
Cross-linguistic Alignment of Wordnets with an Inter-Lingual-Index
The design of the EuroWordNet database is discussed, in which semantic databases like WordNet1.5 for several languages are combined via a so-called inter-lingual-index, which has been developed to compare the semantic configurations across languages and to track down differences.
Metrics for Evaluation of Ontology-based Information Extraction
This paper discusses existing evaluation metrics, and proposes a new method for evaluating the ontology population task, which is general enough to be used in a variety of situations, yet more precise than many current metrics.
NLP Techniques for Term Extraction and Ontology Population
This chapter investigates NLP techniques for ontology population, using a combination of rule-based approaches and machine learning. We describe a method for term recognition using linguistic and
Book Reviews: EuroWordNet: A Multilingual Database with Lexical Semantic Networks
WordNet, the on-line English thesaurus and lexical database developed at Princeton University by George Miller and his colleagues (Fellbaum 1998), has proved to be an extremely important resource
Automatic sense clustering in eurowordnet
This paper addresses ways in which to reduce the fine-grainedness of WordNet and express in a more systematic way the relations between its numerous sense distinctions and the compatibility of the language-specific wordnets in the EuroWordNet multilingual knowledge base.
Semantic Processing of Legal Texts: Where the Language of Law Meets the Law of Language
This paper presents an automatic system for Summarization and Information Extraction of Legal Information, and Evaluation Metrics for Consistent Translation of Japanese Legal Sentences.
The linguistic design of the EuroWordNet database
In this paper the linguistic design of the database under construction within the EuroWordNet project is described. This is mainly structured along the same lines as the Princeton Word-Net, although
