Representational Interoperability of Linguistic and Collaborative Knowledge Bases

  title={Representational Interoperability of Linguistic and Collaborative Knowledge Bases},
  author={Konstantina Garoufi and Torsten Zesch and Iryna Gurevych},
Creating a Natural Language Processing (NLP) application often requires to access lexical-semantic Knowledge Bases (KBs). Recently, Collaborative Knowledge Bases (CKBs) such as Wikipedia and Wiktionary1 have been recognized as promising lexicalsemantic KBs for NLP (Zesch et al., 2008b), complementing traditional Linguistic Knowledge Bases (LKBs). As CKBs differ significantly from LKBs concerning their content, structure and topological properties, the interoperability between CKBs and LKBs has… 
Study of semantic relatedness of words using collaboratively constructed semantic resources
From comprehensive intrinsic and extrinsic evaluations, it is concluded that collaboratively constructed semantic resources provide better coverage than linguistically constructed semantic Resources while yielding comparable task performance and can indeed be used as a proxy for linguistically constructing semantic resources that might not exist for minor languages.
WordNet―Wikipedia―Wiktionary: Construction of a Three-way Alignment
Some set-theoretic conventions for describing concepts and their alignments are established, and they are used to describe a method for automatically constructing n-way alignments from arbitrary pairwise alignments.
Putting the „Wisdom‐of‐Crowds“ to Use in NLP: Collaboratively Constructed Semantic Resources on the Web
This work focuses on constructing task and domain targeted corpora that are cleaned, linguistically analyzed, and further exploited in a traditional way for various NLP tasks.
Collaborative Enrichment of Electronic Dictionaries Standardized-LMF
This paper deals with applying the collaborative enrichment for electronic dictionaries standardized according to LMF-ISO 24613 to expose the challenges related to this framework and propose practical solutions based on an appropriate approach.
DKPro Similarity: An Open Source Framework for Text Similarity
The goal is to provide a comprehensive repository of text similarity measures which are implemented using standardized interfaces and come with a set of full-featured experimental setups which can be run out-of-the-box and be used for future systems to built upon.

Extracting Lexical Semantic Knowledge from Wikipedia and Wiktionary
This paper presents two application programming interfaces for Wikipedia and Wiktionary which are especially designed for mining the rich lexical semantic information dispersed in the knowledge bases, and provide efficient and structured access to the available knowledge.
Lexical Markup Framework (LMF)
The production of a consensual specification on lexicons can be a useful aid for the various NLP actors within the sub-group ISO-TC37/SC4/WG4, a model that provides a common standardized framework for the construction of NLP lexicons.
Yago: a core of semantic knowledge
YAGO builds on entities and relations and currently contains more than 1 million entities and 5 million facts, which includes the Is-A hierarchy as well as non-taxonomic relations between entities (such as HASONEPRIZE).
Using Wiktionary for Computing Semantic Relatedness
It is shown that Wiktionary is the best lexical semantic resource in the ranking task and performs comparably to other resources in the word choice task, and the concept vector based approach yields the best results on all datasets in both evaluations.
Integrating Cyc and Wikipedia: Folksonomy meets rigorously defined common-sense
This work maps categories from the largest manually-built ontology, Cyc, onto Wikipedia articles describing corresponding concepts, drawing both on Wikipedia’s rich but chaotic hyperlink structure and Cyc's carefully defined taxonomic and common-sense knowledge.
Putting Pieces Together: Combining FrameNet, VerbNet and WordNet for Robust Semantic Parsing
This paper describes our work in integrating three different lexical resources: FrameNet, VerbNet, and WordNet, into a unified, richer knowledge-base, to the end of enabling more robust semantic
LEXUS, a web-based tool for manipulating lexical resources lexicon
It is the first implementation of the Lexical Markup Framework model currently being developed at ISO TC37/SC4 and has the possibility to create lexicon structures, manipulate content and use of typed relations.
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.
Graph-Theoretic Analysis of Collaborative Knowledge Bases in Natural Language Processing
We present a graph-theoretic analysis of the topological structures underlying the collaborative knowledge bases Wikipedia and Wiktionary, which are promising uprising resources in Natural Language
Roget's thesaurus and semantic similarity
A system that measures semantic similarity using a computerized 1987 Roget's Thesaurus, and evaluated it by performing a few typical tests, comparing the results with those produced by WordNet-based similarity measures.
