In this paper we describe the extraction of thesaurus information from parsed dictio- nary de nition sentences. The main data for our experiments comes from Lexeed, a Japanese semantic dictionary, and the Hinoki treebank built on it. The dictio- nary is parsed using a head-driven phrase structure grammar of Japanese. Knowledge is extracted from the semantic representa- tion (Minimal Recursion Semantics). This makes the extraction process language inde- pendent.
