In this paper we propose a novel approach for ontology alignment and domain ontology extraction from the existing knowledge bases, WordNet and HowNet. These two knowledge bases are aligned to construct a bilingual ontology based on the co- occurrence of the words in the sentence pairs of a parallel corpus. The bilingual ontology has the merit that it contains more structural and semantic information coverage from these two complementary knowledge bases. For domain- specific applications, the domain specific ontology is further extracted from the bilingual ontology by the island-driven algorithm and the domain-specific corpus. Finally, the domain-dependent terminologies and some axioms between domain terminologies are integrated into the ontology. For ontology evaluation, experiments were c...
