|Multilingual Ontology Matching based on Wiktionary Data Accessible via SPARQL Endpoint||Feiyu Lin
|Proceedings of the 13th Russian Conference on Digital Libraries RCDL’2011||English||2011||Interoperability is a feature required by the Semantic Web. It is provided by the ontology matching methods and algorithms. But now ontologies are presented not only in English, but in other languages as well. It is important to use an automatic translation for obtaining correct matching pairs in multilingual ontology matching. The translation into many languages could be based on the Google Translate API, the Wiktionary database, etc. From the point of view of the balance of presence of many languages, of manually crafted translations, of a huge size of a dictionary, the most promising resource is the Wiktionary. It is a collaborative project working on the same principles as the Wikipedia. The parser of the Wiktionary was developed and the machine-readable dictionary was designed. The data of the machine-readable Wiktionary are stored in a relational database, but with the help of D2R server the database is presented as an RDF store. Thus, it is possible to get lexicographic information (definitions, translations, synonyms) from web service using SPARQL requests. In the case study, the problem entity is a task of multilingual ontology matching based on Wiktionary data accessible via SPARQL endpoint. Ontology matching results obtained using Wiktionary were compared with results based on Google Translate API.||5||0|
|Semi-automatic enrichment of crowdsourced synonymy networks: the WISIGOTH system applied to Wiktionary||Franck Sajous
|Language Resources and Evaluation||English||2011||Semantic lexical resources are a mainstay of various Natural Language Processing applications. However, comprehensive and reliable resources are rare and not often freely available. Handcrafted resources are too costly for being a general solution while automatically-built resources need to be validated by experts or at least thoroughly evaluated. We propose in this paper a picture of the current situation with regard to lexical resources, their building and their evaluation. We give an in-depth description of Wiktionary, a freely available and collaboratively built multilingual dictionary. Wiktionary is presented here as a promising raw resource for NLP. We propose a semi-automatic approach based on random walks for enriching Wiktionary synonymy network that uses both endogenous and exogenous data. We take advantage of the wiki infrastructure to propose a validation “by crowds”. Finally, we present an implementation called WISIGOTH, which supports our approach.||7||0|
|Encouraging language students to contribute inflection data to Wiktionary||Zachary Kurmas||WikiSym||English||2010||We propose building a computer program to simplify access to the inflection (i.e., “word ending”) data in Wiktionary. This program will make it easier to both (1) look up a word’s inflections and, more importantly, (2) edit incorrect inflections. We expect that such a program will encourage foreign language students to both use Wiktionary as a resource and contribute inflection and other grammar data toWiktionary. We believe that the resulting additional activity will make Wiktionary a better resource for students — especially students of those languages for which there are no cheap, comprehensive inflection resources — and provide data that will be beneficial to the wiki research community||1||0|
|Zawilinski: a library for studying grammar in Wiktionary||Zachary Kurmas||WikiSym||English||2010||We present Zawilinski, a Java library that supports the extraction and analysis of grammatical data in Wiktionary. Zawilinski can efficiently (1) filter Wiktionary for content pertaining to a specified language, and (2) extract a word’s inflections from its Wiktionary entry. We have thus far used Zawilinski to (1) measure the correctness of the inflections for a subset of the Polish words in the English Wiktionary and to (2) show that this grammatical data is very stable. (Only 131 out of 4748 Polish words have had their inflection data corrected.) We also explain Zawilinski’s key features and discuss how it can be used to simplify the development of additional grammar-based analyses.||3||2|
|Using the Wiktionary graph structure for synonym detection||Timothy Weale
|People’s Web Meets||English||2009||This paper presents our work on using the graph structure of Wiktionary for synonym detection. We implement semantic relatedness metrics using both a direct measure of information flow on the graph and a comparison of the list of vertices found to be “close” to a given vertex. Our algorithms, evaluated on ESL 50, TOEFL 80 and RDWP 300 data sets, perform better than or comparable to existing semantic relatedness measures.||5||1|
