The UK National Centre for Text Mining (NaCTeM) has today made available
a plugin for Protege 4 that accesses its TerMine web service. The plugin
uses text mining tools to extract candidate terms from a corpus of text
and provides an interface for rapidly bringing these terms into an OWL
ontology. Development of the plugin came in response to requests and
requirements from ontology engineers. Simon Jupp and Matthew Horridge of
the School of Computer Science, University of Manchester, developed the
plugin for NaCTeM.

The plugin can be downloaded from:

Further information is available in the accompanying plugin
documentation. Access via the plugin to TerMine is free for academic
research purposes, although non-UK academics must register an academic
IP address to gain access.
