Advances and Challenges of an Ontology Focused on Verbs Related to Political Violence
Currently, it is common to find various conceptual representation computational tools to support the work of specialists in different fields of knowledge. To study political violence, however, there are no such tools to formally organize and structure pertinent knowledge and facilitate the study of the vast amount of information available today.
Linguistic clues may be one of the foundations to describe, classify and represent knowledge. Preferentially, to produce automatic management, common nouns, proper nouns and adjectives have been used as an axis, provided their capability to represent concepts. However, it is also possible to base the automatic administration of texts on verbs, for they represent action and furnish a possibility to understand reality dynamically, under the form of a cluster of events.
