Session Main Conference

Systems that automatically discover semantic classes have emerged in part to address the limitations of broad-coverage lexical re- sources such as WordNet and Cyc. The cur- rent state of the art discovers many semantic classes but fails to label their concepts. We propose an algorithm labeling semantic classes and for leveraging them to extract is-a relationships using a top-down approach.
