In this paper, we present an efficient term rewriting technique that computes a degree of term to domain relevance. The proposed method resolves the problems in ontology integrated concept search. Those problems are (i) Pre-defined concept classes in ontology are not relevant to users (no proper concept class for a target annotation has not found). (ii) Too many similar concept classes are provided to a user therefore, a user may fail to choose a correct semantic class for a target annotation (ordinary users are not an expert in concept classification). The method uses sense disambiguation task for finding relevant terms for a given domain. Sense disambiguation requires term-to-term similarity measurement and term frequency measurement. For fair modeling of not observed term frequencies, discounting and redistribution model is applied. The proposed method is a compliment to our previous work presented in . Robustness of our method is demonstrated through human judgment test that shows our method allows prediction of precise term list (overall 75% of correct prediction) that are relevant to a given domain.
