The Analogical Thesaurus

Tony Veale

Innovative applications often occur at the juncture of radically different domains of research. This paper describes an emerging application, called the analogical thesaurus, that arises at the boundary of two very different domains, the highly applied domain of information retrieval, and the esoteric domain of lexical metaphor interpretation. This application has the potential to not just to improve the utility of conventional electronic thesauri, but to serve as an intelligent mapping component in any system that uses analogical reasoning or casebased reasoning.
