Abstract

There is a constant need for terminological models of information, precisely, in specialized contexts. One way of describing conceptual information is through knowledge representation resources e.g. knowledge bases and ontologies. The objective of this paper is to compare how these resources organise terminological information for users. In particular, we will compare the conceptual representations in i-Term, a terminology and knowledge management application with its ontology module i-Model, and in FunGramKB, a multipurpose knowledge base for natural language understanding. With this aim in mind, we will introduce and discuss the concept modelling principles governing both i-Term/i-Model and FunGramKB in a practical and comparative way.
