Ontologies are often used in combination with natural language processing (NLP) tools to carry out ontology-related text manipulation tasks, such as automatic annotation of biomedical texts with ontology terms. These tasks involve categorizing relevant terms from texts under the appropriate categories. This requires coupling ontologies with lexical resources. Several projects have realized these kinds of mappings with upper-level ontologies that are extended by domain-specific ontologies… 

Semi-Automatic Mapping of WordNet to Basic Formal Ontology

This work aims at creating a lexico-semantic resource that can be used in NLP tools to perform ontology-related text manipulation tasks by using existing mappings between WordNet and the KYOTO Ontology.

Matching Domain and Top-level ontologies exploring Word Sense Disambiguation and Word Embedding

This paper proposes an approach that relies on existing alignments between WordNet and top-level ontologies that explores word sense disambiguation and word embedding models and evaluates the approach in the task of matching DOLCE and SUMO top- level ontologies to ontologies from three different domains.

Aligning IATE Criminal Terminology to SUMO

An ontology matching system is applied in the context of an information extraction project regarding criminal data and the use of multi-linguality in the disambiguation problem itself, as in the case of “alvo” (aim as target and not goal) which becomes more clear in the Portuguese than the English version.

Aligning Top-level and Domain Ontologies

This work intends to propose an approach to align top-level and domain ontologies, and the use of general lexical databases as an intermediary layer is a direction.

Applying Semantic Web Technologies to Provide Feasibility Feedback in Early Design Phases

This paper introduces an ontological framework that enables early feasibility analyses and compares the ontology's universals to fundamental classes of existing knowledge bases from the manufacturing and the batch processing domains to demonstrate the approach's domain-independent applicability.

Enhancing Terminological Knowledge with Upper Level Ontologies

This communication advocate the use of upper level ontologies such as the Basic Formal Ontology (BFO) to enhance terminological resources and research and a summary of the benefits that such ontologies can bring to both terminological theory and practice.

Applying knowledge bases to make factories smarter

To bridge the gap between top-level ontologies and existing domain KBs, an Intermediate Engineering Ontology (IEO) is introduced, which offers new insights by integrating knowledge from various domains, stakeholders, and companies.

Foundational ontologies meet ontology matching: A survey

An overview of the different tasks involved in ontology matching that consider foundational ontologies is presented and the strengths and weaknesses of existing proposals are discussed and the challenges to be addressed in the future are highlighted.



Linking Lixicons and Ontologies: Mapping WordNet to the Suggested Upper Merged Ontology

This paper describes the upperlevel ontology SUMO (Suggested Upper Merged Ontology), which has been proposed as the initial version of an eventual Standard Upper Ontology (SUO), and describes the popular, free, and structured WordNet lexical database.

Mapping WordNet to the Kyoto ontology

A complete set of heuristics for mapping all WordNet nouns, verbs and adjectives to the ontology based on DOLCE provides a extremely rich and powerful basis for semantic processing of text in any domain.

Ontology and the Lexicon: Formal ontology as interlingua: the SUMO and WordNet linking project and global WordNet

A semantic network such as WordNet, which contains over 117,000 synsets that are organized into a huge semantic network, is an attempt to model one way in which concepts and words could be organized.

Ontological realism: A methodology for coordinated evolution of scientific ontologies

A methodology for ontology development that is now being used by multiple groups of researchers in different life science domains is tested and refined, and some of its principles are being applied, especially within the framework of the OBO (Open Biomedical Ontologies) Foundry initiative.

KYOTO: an open platform for mining facts

An open text-mining system that was developed for the Asian-European project KYOTO uses an open text representation format and a central ontology to enable extraction of knowledge and facts from large volumes of text in many different languages is described.

WordNet : an electronic lexical database

The lexical database: nouns in WordNet, Katherine J. Miller a semantic network of English verbs, and applications of WordNet: building semantic concordances are presented.

Sweetening WORDNET with DOLCE

The DOLCE upper-level ontology is introduced, which is inspired by such principles but with a clear orientation toward language and cognition, meant to be conceptually more rigorous, cognitively transparent, and efficiently exploitable in several applications.

Mapping BFO and DOLCE

A framework for mapping BFO and DOLCE categories in terms of equivalence and subsumption between categories is developed in order to integrate ontologies based on BFO such as FMA.

BFO/DOLCE Primitive Relation Comparison

The primitive relations of the BFO and DOLCE upper ontologies are examined, which sets a framework for developing a common upper ontology that utilizes the assets of both.
