I think you need lexicons with mapping to a concepts , not dictionary per
say.
A lexicon can have  one word in it.
Cascading lexicons is about overriding a default concept map within a given
scope.
For that all you need is
  - a relevant RDF (typically using OWL) ontology.
 - one  good concept oriented lexicon, with multiple entries per  word

An old document that you marked up can also be referenced as containing
overriding material for a new document

you do not to use any cascading for 3.1 , but cascading is a way to
disambiguate text quickly, in other words, after one or two documents you
can have cascading in place that typifies how you use words.

A good base lexicon is wordnet at Princeton, It is huge, with a good
"consept based" orientation.

Default  rules for cascading are in the RDF techniques document.

what else, yes, the place to see good sites using concept mapping of normal
text will be the WAAC - or ask Andy Judson (on this list)


Keep well
