An increasing number of enterprises are beginning to include ontologies into Text Analytics (TA) applications. This can be challenging for a TA group wishing to avail of such technologies due to the manual effort needed to map language resources within a TA system for a new domain. Ontology lexicalization offers a solution to this problem by seeking to automatically generate lexical resources in order to shrink the manual effort of this conceptto-text mapping process. However, conventional

Such approaches do not generalize to cope with more complex concept mentions such as nominal compounds or multi-word expressions. An alternative consideration is lemon -Lexicon Model for Ontologies which offers a more sophisticated solution to this problem. We describe a simple use case for exploiting lemon within a widely used open-source TA framework and demonstrate how lemon generated lexical resources are at least comparable in agreement to OntoRootGazeteer, a conventional ontology lexicalization approach.
