Abstract: The paper describes an unsupervised framework for domain taxonomy enrichment with new domain-specific concepts extracted from domain text corpora. The framework is based on an extended model of hierarchical self-organizing maps. Terms extracted by mining a text corpus encode contextual content information, in a distributional vector space. The enrichment behaves like a classification of the extracted terms into the existing taxonomy by attaching them as hyponyms for the intermediate and leaf nodes of the taxonomy. We propose an evaluation setting in which we assess the power of attraction of the population of terms towards the branches of the taxonomy (recall) and the precision of attaching correct hyponyms (accuracy).
