Reusing existing taxonomy in ontology construction



The paper focuses on ways of reuse of an existing taxonomy in an ontology construction. The paper presents the possibilities of using the taxonomy built in the selected domain when creating its domain ontology. The first part explains the difference between taxonomies and ontologies in different contexts (the meaning of concepts, the language used, etc.). The second part focuses on the description of the specific domain ontology and the use of the existing taxonomy for its building.
