Incremental Knowledge Acquisition from WordNet and EuroWordNet
University of Sheffield, U.K.
This paper describes the process of the creation and extraction of implicit knowledge from WordNet (Fellbaum, 1998) and EuroWordNet (Vossen, 1998). This knowledge is an extension of the explicit knowledge structures already provided by the wordnets in the form of synsets and semantic relations, and is contained both within (Euro)WordNet's hierarchical structure and the glosses that are associated with each WordNet synset.
