Abstract

In the daily conversation, new words and proper nouns (unknown words) appear in some cases. This paper proposes the method to paraphrase unknown words to common words using Thesaurus in which knowledge concerning noun is defined by a tree structure. This method uses the search results of robot type search engine (Google) as a source concerning unknown words. The relation to each node of Thesaurus is evaluated based of the search results, and unknown words are classified as an appropriate node. This method can support the user’s understanding of unknown words.

Keywords
