The relation between ontologies and language is currently at the forefront
of natural language processing (NLP). Ontologies, as widely used models in
semantic technologies, have much in common with the lexicon. A lexicon
organizes words as a conventional inventory of concepts, while an ontology
formalizes concepts and their logical relations. A shared lexicon is the
prerequisite for knowledge-sharing through language, and a shared ontology
is the prerequisite for knowledge-sharing through information technology.
In building models of language, computational linguists must be able to
accurately map the relations between words and the concepts that they can
be linked to. This book focuses on the technology involved in enabling
integration between lexical resources and semantic technologies. It will be
of interest to researchers and graduate students in NLP, computational
linguistics, and knowledge engineering, as well as in semantics,
psycholinguistics, lexicology and morphology/syntax.

Part I. Fundamental Aspects:
1. Ontology and the lexicon: a multi-disciplinary perspective. Laurent
Prévot, Chu-Ren Huang, Nicoletta Calzolari, Aldo Gangemi, Alessandro Lenci,
and Alessandro Oltramari; 2. Formal ontology as interlingua: the SUMO and
WordNet linking project and GlobalWordNet. Adam Pease and Christiane
Fellbaum; 3. Interfacing WordNet with DOLCE: towards OntoWordNet. Aldo
Gangemi, Nicola Guarino, Claudio Masolo, and Alessandro Oltramari; 4.
Reasoning over natural language text by means of FrameNet and ontologies.
Jan Scheffczyk, Collin F. Baker, and Srini Narayanan; 5. Synergizing
ontologies and the lexicon: a roadmap. Alessandro Oltramari, Aldo Gangemi,
Chu-Ren Huang, Nicoletta Calzolari, Alessandro Lenci, and Laurent Prévot;

Part II. Discovery and Representation of Conceptual Systems:
6. Experiments of ontology construction with formal concept analysis.
SuJian Li, Qin Lu, and Wenjie Li; 7. Ontology, lexicon, and fact repository
as leveraged to interpret events of change. Marjorie McShane, Sergei
Nirenburg, and Stephen Beale; 8. Hantology: conceptual system discovery
based on orthographic convention. Ya-Min Chou and Chu-Ren Huang; 9. What's
in a schema? A formal metamodel for ECG and FrameNet. Aldo Gangemi;

Part III. Interfacing Ontologies and Lexical Resources:
10. Interfacing ontologies and lexical resources. Laurent Prévot, Stefano
Borgo, and Alessandro Oltramari; 11. Sinica BOW (Bilingual Ontological
WordNet): integration of BilingualWord-Net and SUMO. Chu-Ren Huang, Ru-Yng
Chang, and Hsiang-bin Lee; 12. Ontology-based semantic lexicons: mapping
between terms and object descriptions. Paul Buitelaar; 13. Merging global
and specialized linguistic ontologies. Manuela Speranza and Bernardo Magnini;

Part IV. Learning and Using Ontological Knowledge:
14. The life cycle of knowledge. Alessandro Lenci; 15. The omega ontology.
Andrew Philpot, Eduard Hovy, and Patrick Pantel; 16. Automatic acquisition
of lexico-semantic knowledge for question answering. Lonneke van der Plas,
Gosse Bouma, and Jori Mur; 17. Agricultural ontology construction and
maintenance in Thai. Asanee Kawtrakul and Aurawan Imsombut.
