Abstract
Relation extraction systems typically rely on local lexical
and syntactic features as evidence. Recent work suggests
that for a given relation, there might exist certain patterns
which, if present in the graph of relationships between ob-
jects, provide additional evidence for that relation. While
these relational patterns can be very useful, obtaining them
on a per-relation basis can be difficult. We propose template
relational patterns based on the hyponymy relation. These
patterns are applicable for all relations. Existing resources
like WordNet are a rich and reliable source of hyponymy
relationships between entities. We present techniques for
making use of these template patterns for extracting rela-
tionships and incorporating them into the ontology. Our
experiments show performance improvements in both tasks.
