Title: Ontology and the Lexicon
Subtitle: A Natural Language Processing Perspective
Written By: Chu-ren Huang
Nicoletta Calzolari
Aldo Gangemi
Alessandro Lenci
Description:

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.
