by Maria Ruiz-Casado et al.
Ruiz-Casado et al. extend WordNet by extracting hyponym, hyperonym, holonym and meronym relations from the simple english version of WikiPedia. The authors automize
- the extraction of relations and
- the process of learning textual patterns modeling these relations (e.g. X is one of the PLURAL-NOUN in Y)
- word sense disambiguation
- pattern extraction based on existing relations in WordNet
- pattern generalization of the patterns retrieved in the step above
- identification of new relations
