Deep semantic representation
in a domain-specific ontology
EcoLexicon is a frame-based visual thesaurus on the Environment that is gradually evolving towards the status of a formal ontology. For this purpose, the information in its relational database is in the process of being linked to the ontological system of FunGramKB, a multipurpose knowledge base. This enables the explicitation of specialized knowledge as an extension of general knowledge through its representation in the domain-specific satellite ontology of a main general ontology. This paper describes the linking process and more specifically, how the general concepts in FunGramKB can be extended and reused in deep semantic representations in a domain-specific ontology.
