This paper is based on our efforts on automatic multi-word terms extraction and its conceptual structure for multi- ple languages. At present, we mainly focus on English and the major Ro- mance languages such as French, Span- ish, Portuguese, and Italian. This pa- per is a case study for Italian language. We present how to build automatically conceptual structure of automatically ex- tracted multi-word terms from domain specific corpora for Italian. We show the experimental results for extracting multi-word terms from two domain cor- pora (“natural area” and “organic agri- culture”). Since this work is still on- going, we discuss our future direction at the end of the paper.
