Subject: Ontolingua as a Frame Base
I am looking for a generic frame base to store, index, and manipulate a
50,000 headword dictionary-thesaurus of English. The index scheme is based
on a typology of word relations, based in part on Melcuk's word relations
typology. relations include Part/whole (part of), taxonomy (kind of),
instrument (used for), compostion (made of), source (comes from) etc.
Would Ontolingua be suitable?
