Wikipedia pagelinks, i.e. links between Wikipages, carry an intended semantics: they indicate the existence of a factual relation between the DBpedia entity referenced by the source Wikipage, and the DBpedia entity referenced by the target Wikipage of the link. These relations are represented in DBpedia as occurrences of the generic ”wikiPageWikilink” property. We designed and implemented a novel method to uncover the intended semantics of pagelinks, and to represent them as semantic relations. In this paper, we test our method on a subset of Wikipedia, showing its potential impact for DBpedia enrichment.
