We are pleased to announce the availability of 

           SemRep, 

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

SemRep integrates several other repositories including WordNet and UMLS as
well 

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
knowledge 

processing and linking purposes similar to the use of WordNet.
