Semantic similarity measures within a reference ontology have been used in a few ontology alignment (OA) systems. Most use a single reference ontology, typically WordNet, and a single similarity measure within it. The mediating matcher with semantic similarity (MMSS) was added to AgreementMaker to incorporate the selection of a semantic similarity measure and the combination of multiple reference ontologies in an adaptable fashion. The results of experiments using the MMSS on the anatomy track
more » ... f the Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative (OAEI) are reported. A variety of semantic similarity measures are applied within multiple reference ontologies. Using multiple reference ontologies with the MMSS improved alignment results. All information-content based semantic similarity measures produced better alignment results than a path-based semantic similarity measure.
