    • a set of 1310 common Base Concepts represented as Inter-Lingual-Index records (mostly WordNet1.5 synsets)
    • can play an important role in two or more wordnets.
    • Importance is measured in terms of number of relations attached
    • The fourth heuristics makes use of the fact that we have separately added the 63 Top Concepts (TCs) to the Base Concepts (the most important concepts) in the Dutch wordnet and WordNet1.5.
    • The TCs represent fundamental semantic features, such as Natural, Artifact, Dynamic, Static, Physical, Mental that can be combined into complex feature combinations (see the general documentation for a further motivation and explanation of the top-ontology).
