Abstract

Onto.PT is a new public wordnet-like lexical ontology for Portuguese. To make its creation faster and to deal with information sparsity, Onto.PT is created automatically and integrates information extracted from existing lexical resources. After introducing Onto.PT’s construction approach, this paper gives a closer look on this resource and provides information on its availability.

Keywords
