MENTA: Inducing multilingual taxonomies from Wikipedia
Abstract In recent years, a number of projects haveIn recent years, a number of projects have turned to Wikipedia to establish large-scale taxonomies that describe orders of magnitude more entities than traditional manually built knowledge bases. So far, however, the multilingual nature of Wikipedia has largely been neglected. This paper investigates how entities from all editions of Wikipedia as well as WordNet can be integrated into a single coherent taxonomic class hierarchy. We rely on linking heuristics to discover potential taxonomic relationships, graph partitioning to form consistent equivalence classes of entities, and a Markov chain-based ranking approach to construct the final taxonomy. This results in MENTA (Multilingual Entity Taxonomy), a resource that describes 5.4 million entities and is presumably the largest multilingual lexical knowledge base currently available.exical knowledge base currently available.
