In this paper we describe a plug-in (OntoLT) for the widely used Protégé ontology development tool that supports the interactive extraction and/or extension of ontologies from text. The OntoLT approach provides an environment for the integration of linguistic analysis in ontology engineering through the definition of mapping rules that map linguistic entities in annotated text collections to concept and attribute candidates (i.e. Protégé classes and slots). The paper explains this approach in more detail and discusses some initial experiments on deriving a shallow ontology for the neurology domain from a corresponding collection of neurological scientific abstracts.
