This paper describes our actual and ongoing work in supporting semi-automatic ontology ac- quisition from a corporate intranet of an in- surance company. A comprehensive architec- ture and a system for semi-automatic ontology acquisition supports processing semi-structured information (e.g. contained in dictionaries) and natural language documents and includ- ing existing core ontologies (e.g. GermaNet, WordNet). We present a method for acquir- ing a application-tailored domain ontology from given heterogeneous intranet sources.
