In this work we propose an unsupervised approach to construct a domain-specific ontology from corpus. It is essential for Information Retrieval systems to identify important domain concepts and relationships between them. We identify important domain terms of which multi-words form an important component. Our approach identifies 40% of the domain terms, compared to 22% identified by WordNet on manually annotated smartphone data. We propose an approach to construct a shallow ontology from
