ACL ID W14-4718
Title Default Physical Measurements in SUMO
Venue Workshop on Cognitive Aspects of the Lexicon
Year 2014

The following paper presents a further extension of the Suggested Upper Merged Ontology (SUMO), i. e. the development of default physical measurements for most of its classes (Artifacts, Devices, Objects) and respective children. The extension represents an ar- bitrary, computable and reproducible approximation of defaults for upper and middle-level con- cepts. The paper illustrates advantages of such extension, challenges encountered during the compilation, related work and future research.
