Abstract: An ontology can be seen as an organized structure of concepts according to their relations. A concept is associated with a set of attributes that themselves are also concepts in the ontology. Consequently, ontology construction is the acquisition of concepts and their associated attributes through relations. Manual ontology construction is time-consuming and difficult to maintain. Corpus-based ontology construction methods must be able to distinguish concepts themselves from concept instances. In this paper, a novel and simple method is proposed for automatically identifying concept attributes through the use of Wikipedia as the corpus. The built-in {{Infobox}} in Wiki is used to acquire concept attributes and identify semantic types of the attributes. Two simple induction rules are applied to improve the performance. Experimental results show precisions of 92.5% for attribute acquisition and 80% for attribute type identification. This is a very promising result for automatic ontology construction.
