We investigate the benefits that can result from the formal representation of linguistic and semantic features of natural language expressions that are used as terms in labels of knowledge representation systems, like taxonomies and ontologies. We show that such a representation can support Human Language Technologies and Semantic Web applications, especially in the context of ontology-based information extraction, since it gives a basis for specifying mapping strategies between the restricted natural language used in taxonomies and ontologies and the unrestricted language used in documents processed by information extraction or semantic annotation tools.
