Lexical annotation is the process of explicit assignment of one or more meanings to a term w.r.t. a sense inventory (e.g., a thesaurus or an ontology). We propose an automatic supervised lexical annotation method, called ALATK (Automatic Lexical Annotation -Topic Kernel), based on the Topic Kernel function for the annotation of schema labels extracted from structured and semi-structured data sources. It exploits Wikipedia as sense inventory and as resource of training data.
