Abstract

This paper studies the problem of the automatic acquisition of the hyponymy (is-a) relation in sentences and develops a new method for it. In this paper, we treat the task of identifying hyponymy relation as two separate problems and solve them based on the following three techniques: term type’s commonality, sequential patterns, property nouns and domain verbs.
