Abstract : In this paper we propose an NLP-based Ontology Population approach for a Generic Structure instantiation from natural language texts, in the domain of Risk Management. The approach is semi-automatic and based on combined NLP techniques using domain expert intervention for control and validation. It relies on the predicative power of verbs in the instantiation process. It is not domain dependent since it heavily relies on linguistic knowledge. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our method on the ontology of the PRIMA project (supported by the European community) and we populate this generic domain ontology via an available corpus. A first validation of the approach is done through an experiment with Chemical Fact Sheets from Environmental Protection Agency.
