Abstract

We bootstrapped Chinese WordNet with semantic domain labels of WordNet Domains for constructing a language resource called Chinese WordNet Domains. The bootstrapping methods work from three aspects: 1) Princeton WordNet alignment, 2) lexical semantic relations and 3) domain taxonomy mapping. Experimental results of our proposed bootstrapping based domain predication achieve satisfying effects. We believe the resulting Chinese WordNet Domains will be the first oriental language resource, which can be used to interoperate with the existing WordNet Domains of several languages and benefits for cross-language and domain-specific researches and applications. In addition, we also plan to release resulting Chinese WordNet Domains to the community for research purposes.
