Full text available as:



The paper at hand describes an approach to automatise the creation of a class taxonomy. Information about objects, e.g. "a tank is armored and moves by track", but no prior knowledge about taxonomy structure is presented to a connectionist system which organizes itself by means of activation spreading (McClelland and Rumelhart, 1981) and weight adjustments. The resulting connectionist network has a form of a taxonomy sought-after.
