A method to generate large common-sense knowledge bases from online lexical resources


This paper presents a general method to automatically build large knowledge bases from online lexical resources. While our experiments were limited to generate a knowledge base from WordNet, an online lexical database, the method is applicable to any type of dictionary organized around the elementary structure lexical entry - definition(s). The advantages of using WordNet, or richer online resources such as thesauri, as the source of a knowledge base, are outlined.
