This paper presents a novel algorithm for the acquisition of Information Extraction patterns. The approach makes the assump- tion that useful patterns will have simi- lar meanings to those already identified as relevant. Patterns are compared using a variation of the standard vector space model in which information from an on- tology is used to capture semantic sim- ilarity. Evaluation shows this algorithm performs well when compared with a previously reported document-centric ap- proach.
