We are pleased to announce the availability of 


a new repository of semantic relations (equal, is-a, part-of etc.) between

SemRep integrates several other repositories including WordNet and UMLS as

as numerous concepts and relations extracted from Wikipedia. 

It currently includes about a million 

concepts and 5 million relations. 

SemRep can also determine semantic relations indirectly, e.g.,  the 

relation (convertible, has-a, engine) can be derived from 

(convertible, is-a, car) and (car, has-a, engine). 


SemRep has been successfully used as background knowledge for 

semantic ontology matching. It is expected to be useful for additional

processing and linking purposes similar to the use of WordNet.
