Enhancing Terminological Knowledge With Upper Level Ontologies

Selja Seppälä, Amanda Hicks
2015 CEUR Workshop Proceedings  
In this communication, we advocate the use of upper level ontologies such as the Basic Formal Ontology (BFO) to enhance terminological resources and research. First, we present common issues in ontologized terminological work. Then, we review two projects that illustrate the potential advantages of integrating rigorous formal upper level ontologies. Finally, we discuss possible challenges and conclude with a summary of the benefits that such ontologies can bring to both terminological theory and practice.
