English abstract

A vocabulary stores words, synonyms, word sense definitions (i.e. glosses), relations between word senses and concepts; such a vocabulary is generally referred to as the Controlled Vocabulary if choice or selections of terms are done by domain specialists. In our case, we create and match two controlled vocabularies by using their concept facet. This methodology is based on semantic matching which is different from the orthodox view of matching.
