Consistent annotation of EuroWordNet's InterLingual Index
with the Top Concept Ontology.
This work consists of the complete and consistent ontological annotation of the nominal part of WordNet 1.6. The annotation has been carried out using the semantic features defined in the EuroWordNet Top Concept Ontology. It has been achieved by following a methodology based on an iterative and incremental expansion of the initial labeling through the WordNet's hierarchy while setting inheritance blockage points.
Since this labeling has been set on a version of WordNet which is alligned to the EuroWordNet's Interlingual Index (ILI), it can be also used to populate any other wordnet linked to it through a simple porting process. This feature-annotated WordNet is intended to be useful for a large number of semantic NLP tasks.
