Metonyms Contained within Ontologies on a Homeland Security: Representation of Change in a Sociopolitical Paradigm
Using automatic text analysis methodology described below, we are to attempt and validate our hypothesis through select sets of domain specific corpora. Inline with a case analysis framework and grounded theory, for our observational study. Historical Studies methodology, - Collect a random sample of text corpora in a domain (may include sub-domains). That of investigation: satellite technology - Frequency analysis for single and compound specialist terms - Study semantic relationships hyponymy (type of)/metonymy (kind of): micropropulsion (type of propulsion) meronymy (part of): ionospheric (part of the sphere) - Extract candidate ontology - Map the ontology in a document database of the domain Our basic assumption is that frequency is a correlate of acceptability (Quirk, 1985).
