Ontologies promise solution(s) to make existing data in the web lucidly discernible by machines. Ontological construction is a daunting task that comprises determining relevant concepts and their underlying relationships. In this regard, metaontology can be constructed using databases which assist by enriching the latter with a set of possible relationships between concepts pairs in the given document(s). Databases are selected to store the relationships since they are known to make information retrieval and updations swift. This technique significantly improves on the time and scalability factors when compared to existing methods. Relationships stored in the database is further converted into a graph to obtain inter transitive relationships. They are appended to the ontology based on their degree of certainty rather than relying only on frequency as pursued in other approaches. Hence, the proposed approach guarantees higher accuracy compared to other approaches
