Knowledge structures called Concel)t (?lustering Knowledge (]raphs (CCKGs) are introduced along with a process for their construction from a machine read- able dictionary. C(3K(]s contain multi- ple concepts interrelated through multi- l)le semantic relations together forming a semantic duster represented by a con-. ceptual graph. '1'he knowledge acquisi- tion is performed on a children's first dic- tionary. The concepts inw)lved are gen- eral and typical of a daily lid conw'a'sa- lion. A collection of conceptual clusters together can lbrm the basis of a lexi- cal knowledge base, where each C'(,'l((.~ contains a limited nnmber of highly con- nected words giving usefid information about a particular domain or situation.
