In this paper we propose an approach for the semi-automatic building of (shallow) ontologies from text by proposing an automated extraction of (possibly underspecified) semantic relations from linguistically annotated text. The semantic extraction is based on a set of rules that apply to variouslinguistic phenomena, like adjectival pre-modification, post-nominal genetive and prepositional modification, NP and clausal coordination, etc.
