Concept lexicalizations

  • Anonymous - 2010-05-27


    do you know whether there is a way to retrieve all lexicalizations of a concept with the Java API? E.g. Given "Airplane", to collect "aeroplane/airplane/plane" or, given "London" to retrieve "London, Ontario/London, Ontario province" and so on… It seems that I can find this information in the OWL version of OpenCyc but I cannot find how to access this functionality programmatically within the API (I tried to look everywhere but it has me quite baffled).

    For the sake of completeness, we are using ResearchCyc (the latest version in the FTP repository). Thank you for your feedback.

    Best - Simone

    Hi Simone,

    You may have to do this via a query (which of course the API does support). for instance, asking

    (termStrings (CityNamedFn "London" Ontario-CanadianProvince) ?STRING)

    in AllEnglishValidatedLexicalMicrotheoryPSC


    "London, Ontario"
    "London, Ontario province"
