The UNL Knowledge Base, or simply UNLKB, is a network structure where UWs are interconnected through any semantic relation of UNL. In that sense, the UNL KB comprises and extends the UNL Ontology, which deals only with ontological relations. The UNLKB is claimed to improve the results of both the enconversion and the deconversion process, as it would provide them with extralinguistic information normally required for solving ambiguities, anaphora and co-reference in natural language analysis and generation. The UNL KB should be provided as XML table whose schema is presented below.

General syntax

UNL KB entries should have the following format:

<relation type="" frequency="">

  <source id="" attribute="" lang="UNL" frequency="" class="">source</source>
  <target id="" attribute="" lang="UNL" frequency="" class="">target</target>
